I am not sure if this will be a viable solution due to the cost, but I recently paid for the Active State Perl Dev Toolkit. Here are a list of reasons I went with this solution:
- I can cross compile to Windows, 32/64 bit Linux and Mac OS X
- I can use the license on any of the OSes listed above
- There is commercial support if I run into issues
- I can write off the cost as an operational expense on my taxes
- I can deliver a single executable file to a client who doesn't need to worry about installing anything
- I can convert the application into a windows service if desired
This is the first time since I have been using Perl that I decided it was a good idea to pay for this (having survived on free alternatives before now) but I am very glad I made the decision.
