To Perl gurus

You can run Perl from the CD fine as long as you makes sure to set your
environment variables first.  Perl comes with a C and C++ include file that
lets you compile perl scripts with a C compiler.  I've never done it, but I
know I've read about it.

Hello, sorry I didn't make it to the meeting.

Anyway what I was wondering is whether this is feasible:

I'd like to install Perl to a CD rom (burn) with any TK/TCL
stuff that I'd need for interface work for a win 95/98/00

Think of it as a sort of visual-basic-but-it-works thing.

I don't want to install perl on their machine, I just want to
run my scripts off the CD with the interpreter on the CD and any
other tools, etc on the CD.

Also I just have not found anything about compiling perl to an
executable for/on win 95/98/00.

Any ideas, comments or help would be appreciated.
