I am using ActivePerl at work to create some error checking scripts for the new machines we build here. I managed to fit the needed components of ActivePerl onto a floppy disk for portable use, and also mananged to fit the File module as well. Unfortunately, this left me with very little left for scripts, so I editted the File module to include only the modules parts I needed and removed everything I could from ActivePerl. I currently have about 380kb of space on the disk, which is plenty for scripts, but I may need to add additional modules later.

Are there any scripts or programs that strip the Perldoc code from modules? I just want to save a few extra K on the floppy.

Disclaimer: Yes, I know this is bad practice. I program all scripts on a machine with the full install so I don't feel bad about it. Also, a cdrom is out of the question at this time for internal reasons. Let it be said it's in the works, but not for a couple of months (at which time I plan a unified toolkit instead of a stack of floppys.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
