in reply to News regarding compiled commercial deployment of perl based apps?

... what would be the tool to bring a compiled perl on par with non perl-based commercial software?

A complete reimplementation of Perl with a different execution model. Don't hold your breath; you probably won't be able to use any XS modules with it either.

    Well, I meant which "pipeline" would make my executable more or less indistinguishable from a binary that originated in the non-perl world.

      Sure, I know what you meant. With Perl 5 as implemented now, and assuming the ability to run arbitrary Perl 5 programs, no such pipeline can exist. It's trivial for any decent Perl hacker to get the source code out of a running program.
