My mind has gone blank, but the Perl Module Doofer that comes with Activestate Perl is capable of installing from a local folder as well as from CPAN. It ought not be a nightmare.

I think you're right.

I have some Perl experience, and access to Windows, Cygwin and Linux. I also have an .sch file in the making. I'll gladly test portability on those platforms, and make suggestions where I can. I can readily have access to FreeBSD and Solaris x86, if needed, and plausibly OS X x86 if there's a desperate need for it. I suspect it would be covered by and FreeBSD issues, but you never know. "Real" OS X is outside my direct scope, but I have access to a reasonably savvy (though non-linguist) Mac user in a pinch. If there's total and utter need for it, I can test on Solaris Sparc, and IBM AIX, as long as I can do so without it interfering with my work. I might be able to gain access to an HP-UX system, and maybe a zLinux VM if I can sweet-talk the right guy. I'll also gladly help in documenting the .sch format, if such help is desired. Paul
