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
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
I'll also gladly help in documenting the .sch format, if such help is desired.
