When you type "perl Makefile.PL" the Makefile is generated by MakeMaker. MakeMaker is a very cross-platform, Makefile generation tool specific to installing Perl modules. It works on every operating system that Perl does, and that means a LOT of operating systems. All Unixen, all versions of ... [More] Windows and yes, VMS. MakeMaker works with many different flavors and versions of make including GNU make, nmake, dmake, mms and mmk. If you're looking for some hard core cross platform code, look no further. MakeMaker is always looking for more testers and contributors using non-mainstream operating systems and makes. MakeMaker hopes to be retired someday, perhaps by Module::Build. [Less]

IzPack is a one-stop solution for packaging, distributing and deploying applications. It is fully cross-platform and generates a single installer. As such, it is an alternative to native solutions such as platform-specific installers and package managers. IzPack-generated installers only require a Java virtual machine to run.

Module::Build is a system for building, testing, and installing Perl modules. It is meant to be an alternative to ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Developers may alter the behavior of the module through subclassing in a much more straightforward way than with MakeMaker. It also does not require a make on your ... [More] system - most of the Module::Build code is pure-Perl and written in a very cross-platform way. In fact, you don't even need a shell, so even platforms like MacOS (traditional) can use it fairly easily. Its only prerequisites are modules that are included with perl 5.6.0, and it works fine on perl 5.005 if you can install a few additional modules. [Less]

Cobbler is a Linux installation server that allows for rapid setup of network installation environments. With a simple series of commands, network installs can be configured for PXE, reinstallations, media-based net-installs, and virtualized installs (supporting Xen, qemu, KVM, and VMware ... [More] Server). Cobbler uses a helper program called 'koan' (which interacts with Cobbler) for reinstallation and virtualization support. Cobbler can also optionally help with managing DHCP, DNS, power, config management, and yum package mirroring infrastructure -- in this regard, it is a more generalized "batteries included" deployment server, rather than just dealing specifically with installations. It has a command line interface, a web interface, and also several API access options. [Less]
