chennaiite has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks

I am using below modules for my XML comparison.

use XML::SemanticDiff; use XML::SemanticCompare; use XML::LibXML;

I installed those modules and could be able to finish my coding. It worked fine.

I started converting the script into exe using perl2exe. It was successful but when I try to run the exe, I am getting the belwo error message,

Could not find ParserDetails.ini in PERL2EXE_STORAGE/XML/SAX Can't use string ("1") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at PER +L2EXE_STORAGE/XML/ line 147, <ACOUT> line 69.

Also I did include the modules(Ex. #perl2exe_include "XML/";) inside my perl script but no success. could you please help how to fix this issue?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to add
    #perl2exe_bundle "/some/path/ParserDetails.ini"
    to the file on which you are running perl2exe.

    Search your @INC directories for that .ini file, then use the full path in the perl2exe_bundle line. That directive tells perl2exe to include the file in the .exe being created so that it is available to the program when the .exe is executed.

      Hi, I tried those steps, but No success.

      Is there any other way(any free software) to convert my perl script to exe?


        Take a look at pp.

    Quick guess... since you mentioned ParserDetails.ini it seems to be an additional file which you need. This is not the same as including the module.

    Try looking at perl2exe_bundle filename from the Perl2Exe documentation.

    Hello, I solved the issue.

    When perl2exe gives you an error like this where it can't find a file, it is actually listing the directory it expects to find it in.


    So from where ever the .exe file executes, it requires a sub-directory named "PERL2EXE_STORAGE". In that directory, add the next two sub directories, XML and SAX inside of XML.

    Then after you find the ParserDetails.ini file inside of the XML/SAX/ you move a copy to that new directory you created. - TRL
