Please recommend me a portable server, mysql, perl?

Hello!

I really need a portable and preferably compact server, Perl and possibly a mysql client. I'm no techie, I just need to run some Perl/CGI scripts on my PC (some of them use mysql so I guess I'll need that as well).

Now I've looked over XAMPP but it's quite huge and seems to contain all kinds of features I don't really need.

So any recommendations for something smaller would be really welcomed!

Thank you!

PS. I'm on Win 7, 64bit if that is of any importance.

OK. Thanks! It seems very nice - I'll try it out and write back!

Been toying around with it for a little while today and got it to work... so far so good - pretty nice and simple ... just what I need for a beginner user like me!

Thanks!

Thanks for the list! But for someone as inexperienced as I am it is better to get recommendations from people who have actually used any of them and have some impressions... and besides I have some pretty basic needs. I first wanted to use XAMPP but it is pretty big, but it does seem like the most popular one though...

Anyways - thanks again for taking them time - I really appreciate it and have learned something new!

PERL Add-On

Looks like the PERL Add-On was incorporated to the main XAMPP program so yeah, you need the main XAMPP. Sorry for the false lead on something slimmer.

Not a web server

This is not a webserver, doesn't have a MySQL database, nor Perl. It is, however an awesome piece of software and I carry it everywhere I go just in case.
