Re^3: Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 2by flexvault (Vicar)

That would enhance Perl, but would not solve the lack of 'opcodes integrity' from release to release. Maybe the 'use 5.8.8;' could be enhanced to use/force the bytecode to be the same as used for release 5.8.8.
As a programmer, Perl is a fantastic tool.
From the perspective of upper management that authorized the salary for the programmer, it's a tool that end-users can change. We hear all the time on PM "I can't use CPAN" or "I don't have access to a compiler", or ...
The question is coming from someone who is listening to his/her management, and management wants to control the use of the company's computer resources.
A technical answer is not relevant.
Upper management doesn't care how easy/hard it is for the programmer, they want to know that if the software gets deployed to the organization, then it will work the same everywhere.
This isn't new, and it's not going to be solved on PM!
