in thread How to create stand alone Exe

There is no perfect solution when it comes to building a standalone executable from Perl. From my experience I was able to create one using perlc then use MagicErmine on that binary to create a standalone cross-platform 32/64bit executable that successfully ran on multiple distributions. As I mentioned, though, I have not tried it with Tk.

    There is no perfect solution when it comes to building a standalone executable from Perl.... As I mentioned, though, I have not tried it with Tk.

    PAR/PerlApp/CavaPackager.. are all designed this purpose and work out of the box today -- perlc isn't and it won't work, it isn't any kind of solution to the problem of deploying self-contained perl apps.

      My working standalone app that runs on multiple architectures begs to differ. Or perhaps it was a figment of my imagination and not really a binary :-O I only used perlc because it was the only one that played well with MagicErmine and was able to compile it all together in a statically linked binary I was able to share successfully. I'm not saying it's the best solution.

        No it doesn't. Read the BUGS/CAVEATS
