Wow! You hit the nail on the head there (and apparently opened a can of worms too! Better you than me).

That's pretty much where I'm heading. Self install Perl web apps that you simply place in your CGI directory, click and go. PHP'rs do it all the time. The code is bundled up with the CGI install script, which gets neatly extracted into the correct directories based on the running CGI env and help from the user. I see no reason why Perl can't do the same, provided you're not tied down to installing 3rd party modules in places the user doesn't have access to (or at the very least the self install could check for required modules and inform the user of what's missing).

BikeNomad had the right idea with the Self-extracting Perl archives code he posted (although I'm not sure why he felt the need to encode it).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
