in reply to Delay running Perl execs in Windows

That's because the programs created by pp are just archives (think .ZIP) with an executable header that unpacks them the first time they are executed into a temporal directory and then invoke the main script from there.

In my opinion there should be better ways to do that, as for instance, building a .MSI file able to install the script, the modules and all the support files in some directory under c:\Program files (or equivalent) as any other regular application.

But somebody has to actually build that tool :-(
