Hey! That's great. You really got me there. I'll leave my original post uncorrected to get my deserved embarrassment.

What remains, though, is that I am not entirely happy with the tone of your post. If I didn't know who it's coming from, I'd put it down as whining and unproductive. The situation is not nearly as dire as you make it. Steffen

    Well, I will own up to that. I was very frustrated. Perl does so many things so well that I get impatient when it doesn't do something seemingly ordinary by itself for me by magic. ;-)

    I really liked Cava Packager; I was surprised and disappointed that it didn't bundle things as neatly as I thought it should have. pp looked pretty good, and lots of people rave about PAR; I was frustrated by what I thought was a fairly big stumbling block.

    Perhaps what I really needed was to step back and look at the problem differently—and a lot of the posts in this thread suggest different approaches that I will certainly try.

    +1 for the Perl community, anyhow.
