    I'm convinced that shipping CamelBones apps should be really simple. You should be able to copy the relevant .so and .pm files into the new apps' Contents/Resources directory. After all, Perl comes with OSX. Or something.

    Of course I'm yet to manage it. But I'm sure it's possible. I'd love someone to write up how to do it.
    • It is vaguely simple to make shippable .app with camelbones. I've done it with JournalX [].

      The main thing you have to do is recompile the camelbones framework to be distributable within the application. There is an article [] that discribes what you have to do to compile the framework, and then how to copy and reference the framework in your application.
    • Of course, if you've got someone whose installed a different version of Perl from you then it will prove difficult. However, now I've figured out how to use the Cocoa/Java bridge life is easy.

      I'm very impressed with the C/J bridge - I've not had a problem with type munging yet (but then again I'm passing simple strings). Its not like I've never seen a piece of glue like this before -- I mean Perl does it all the time -- but its always impressive to see it done so well in another language :-)
