suppose I could get a Windows machine and install Strawberry and the modules needed. What do I need to grab and copy?
You'd need a Windows machine with internet access, where you can execute gmake and whatever other programs are needed.
Grab the "portable" edition. Put it on that Windows machine
- start the "portableshell.bat"
- cpanm from the portable edition install new modules in that portable edition's tree, so install Tk and whichever modules you need.
- After that is done, copy (or zip, or net use) the whole folder tree onto those restricted machine(s) (after due virus scans, etc., of course).
- When started from that "portableshell.bat", the installed modules would work (at least, they do in my environment)
Due to your restrictions, Inline
and similiar tools probably won't
work, but with Tk I have a working script which is deployed in this manner.
Update: corrected portableperl.bat to portableshell.bat - thanks syphilis
