in thread Perl Scripts on systems without perl environments.

Even better: write a program that will translate the algorithm in your current script into several target languages, one being Perl, and the other being the language that is available on that system. Just as studly (or even moreso) as embedding the Perl interpreter, without having to touch C (unless, of course, that's the other target language).

    oooo! Fancy. Now I have THREE things to maintain. (The converter, the windows version, and the os/2 version.) I am trying to simplify a problem here.

    Seriously though, sometime a couple of years from now, somebody is going to have to figure out what I did here and make it work with whatever new conditions have come up. I don't want to make their job more difficult than absolutely necessary.
