    Hello,

    Does anyone have experience in writing installation script with Perl?
    Is it feasible to use Perl to package programs for installation, if I
    do not use a professional installation buidling tool (such as
    InstallShield)? If so, is there any Perl module for this purpose?
    Where can I find examples?

    Note: I need to build installation packages for both Windows and
    Linux.

    Thanks.

    It's entirely possible and yea, even recommended. Have a look at IBM's
    Tivoli product for one commercial example. Home grown solutions abound.
