Yeah. If you put it like this I agree completely. The whole problem I have with your post is that you blame Indigostar for the first two. They did not make it clear enough that the 1st is not real (but they never claimed it is), and they do say the result will "run at about the same speed".
You should not hold them responsible for someone elses faults. IMO of course.
You are right that with PAR being available there is no real reason to use Perl2exe anymore. It was a valuable tool (though I did not use it myself. I use PerlApp and PerlCtrl) but now there is an opensource replacement.
Anyway ... if someone asks me how to "covert a Perl script into an executable" I will mention PAR, PerlApp and perl2exe. It's his duty to choose, not mine. All I can do for him is to tell him that these three do the same thing just a little bit differently.
