Given that you say it's an intranet app, I'll assume it's web-based. There's essentially two ways Perl can power a web-based app: via CGI; or via some sort of persistent mechanism (FastCGI, mod_perl, Perl-native web servers).

If you're using a persistent mechanism, a single Perl process (and thus a single compilation phase) serves multiple (potentially millions of) requests. So speeding up the compilation phase serves no purpose at all.

If you're not using a persistent mechanism, then a new Perl process is spawned for every request, which has to parse and compile your script, along with all the modules you're using. In this case an opcode cache would give you some extra performance; however switching to a persistent mechanism would give you a far bigger boost.

use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
