Great!
Really interesting, I think I'll use it.

Could you please explain in two words:

  • how required module is unpacked from executable?
  • Is it "saved" in compressed format?
  • Am I right when I am thinking thatno extra temporary files or directories are required for execution?

Also I want to share my own experience on creating independent distributions.

I use similar approach manually for perl-5.6.0 on Win32 for a quite long time.
I succeeded "packing" perl-5.6.1+Tk+Compress::Zlib+(some-other-modules) into some 20 files, most of which are dll-s on my Win32 machine and all text modules being packed into "modules.pm" file (~130Kb in size) which at bootstrap time is unpacked into normal perl modules set.
Having in total 20 files with total size of ~2Mb I have perl with Tk and those selected modules, which I often use.
Very convenient to make independent distributions...

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.
