Installing active perl and modules on machine without inet access

In a nut shell I have to install active perl including several modules on a machine that does not have access to the internet.

I pretty much have a mirror of the needed installation up and running on a separate machine.

Is there any "easy" way to roll up this pre-installed version and transfer it to another machine?

In all actuality I just need to be able to move active perl (with its currently installed modules) from machine A to machine B....

Not that I know of. As far as I know, perl should be installed onto the machine it will run on. Just copying it over from one machine to the other may or may not work.

I don't really need to copy the finall install.

But the modules. Can I down load them to machine a then copy them to machine b

then install fresh active perl on machine B

then install modules locally?

I know you can install modules from a local repository (see PPM help files for how) but I don't know if you can just copy the modules over to the other machine and install them. Give it a try.
