Is it possible to image the perl from one box to another

P: 10
Hi,
I am working with perl in an automation project and I have installed number of modules (say 10),to my kowledge,to work with other boxes, I have to do the same manually in all boxes which is frustrating and time consuming.

Is there any method such as imaging PERL with modules or some perl module itself to copy the perl set up from source box to target boxes..

Not really, at least I don't know of anyone who does this regularly. Because of the differences that exist machine to machine, you would be better off just installing the stuff by hand and ensuring everything works, rather than risking s module not working because one of its pre-requisites aren't installed.

Also, Perl is typically installed by default on Linux systems, so how would you modify the @INC variable? Not something you are able to just modify.

Regards,

Jeff
