<quote>In my simple example Foo.pm is a source file - and only when it is changed, pp is run.</quote> Thank you for explaining what it is, my questions were 'what is the use?' and 'why do you need them?'
I found out that .pm files are perl modules, and from what I understand you can compare them with object files in C(++). Is that right? If so, I could speed up things if I first created .pm of my functions file and constant declaration files before compiling the executables, as I call them as require basic_func.plin all .pl files. That is the way I was thought to do.
The extension .fmt, used in your examples is according to Google the extension for Visual Fox pro file and not .pl like perl
I'm using PAR:Packer, as this was the way within Perl, I found out on Google to create .exe files in a free way. Maybe I'm wrong on this and I should take another turn in creating .exe files in a faster in more reliable way
