Do all my clients need ActivePerl?

I just wrote a perl script using ActivePerl. It works fine on my PC, but not on any others in the building. 99% of my clients are remote. I really don't want to put ActivePerl on each of their machines if I don't have to.

Is there a way to run a Perlscript server-side instead of client side?

Will the Net::Ftp stuff still work correctly?

It depends on what your doing with the script... What are you doing with the script? :)

p.s. I like to compile console apps with perl2exe.

You could (assuming access to a server) install active perl on a shared network server, and update the clients path environment so that the \bin\perl directory is in their path somewhere.

Alternately, go ahead and compile with perl2exe, note that there are some problems with that however, some funky issues with glob and Tk that have caused me many headaches :-)
