Perl is available on nearly every Unix system, old and new. Learn how to use App::FatPacker, Moo, and CLI::Osprey to write apps that are much more powerful than “just a script”, but still pack down to a single file that runs on any machine with a Perl interpreter, with no need to install dependencies from CPAN.

Includes discussion of the app-as-module design style, App::Fatpacker, CLI::Osprey (a fatpack-friendly replacement for MooX::Options + MooX::Cmd), and other tricks I've discovered for seamless dev and deployment.
