Hi Sam

I'm looking to package it up using the development kit from  
ActiveState.  My understanding is that by doing this you can create a  
native installer without having Perl pre-installed on the target  
system.  Does anyone have any comments or advice on that?

I agree that Javascript would be a better solution, but I know a lot  
more Perl than I do Javascript and I need to get this moving quickly.

Thanks for your advice!
