You're perfectly right, although perl2exe and perlApp seem to have their own problems :-)

It seems like PAR and App::Packer might be merging soon, so let's hope something good comes out of this marriage.

On another note -- another solution I found proposed is to just put wperl.exe, perl56.dll, the script and the necessary libraries in lib/ into a directory and install it like that. It also works nicely, and starts up faster. You could always create a shortcut to start the app.

    I use tinyperl to do make small exe file, It is quite buggy but it works fine for very basics (not extra libraries used) things. Usually my exe are 94 Ko. plus the perl58.dll which is 380 ko. Do you think I can do stuff like that with a regular perl exe from your packager?? What would be the size of it?? thanx.. piČ

[oiskuu]: ... getlogin refers to tty owner; if you close STDIN, then getlogin returns undef. I get undef in my shell (running under X)
[tye]: Then there is a more persistent big of data similar to getlogin(). I don't believe even daemonizing drops it. So you can tell services that were started at boot time from those started by a person.
[tye]: I'll have to look into that later. getlogin() suites my current needs.
