Portable::Dist - Modify a Perl distribution to make it portable


The Portable family of modules provides functionality that allows Perl to operate from arbitrary and variable paths.

Portable::Dist is used to apply the necesary modifications to an existing Perl distribution to convert it to a Portable Perl.

Portability Warning

This module is designed for use only on a distribution that is not currently in use. Thus, you should not execute the modification process using the distribution you wish to modify.

This module is also currently only designed to run on Windows (to support the production of Strawberry Perl Portable and other Perl::Dist-related distributions).

If you wish to use this module for other operating systems, please contact the author.
