“Inconvenient,” perhaps, but not “useless.”

In all seriousness, what is so utterly wrong with just using a subdirectory?   Apple’s OS/X system is rather elegant, I think, in taking that approach with how they package all applications:   they’re actually folders.   Just put your executable together more-or-less as a stub, and put the necessary Perl source modules into a directory in a chosen location.

(When I have done this, I used a nested directory structure:   the outer directory contained README.TXT and an inner folder named guts.   The entire thing was marked read-only.   And the README file contained a message which basically said:   “Keep your mitts off that folder and everything that it contains.   These aren’t the ’droids you’re looking for.”   I got a few whimsical comments about that, so I know that some people read it.)   To me, this is every bit as convenient a form of “packaging” as a DLL-file would be, and considerably more maintainable.   It might well be more efficient, too, because Windows will routinely use VM-mapped file I/O when working with files.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
