in reply to Convert to exe

metronomu,
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.

Cheers - L~R

[Corion]: Oh yay. I wonder why a very simple change in a program doesn't elicit a diff, and now I see that my diff program seems to have a bug ;)
[1nickt]: marto thanks for asking, so far so good. A pretty modern stack and decent procedures, although rather too much home-built stuff (e.g. a logging role that should tries to duplicate Log::Any).
[Corion]: No. It's just that I'm comparing the same output file twice, instead of comparing the output files of the two runs %-)
[Corion]: Lo and behold, running a program with the correct input files yields the correct (and expected) output. Yay me.
[1nickt]: Got a MacBook and am expected to develop directly on it, ironic given the recent thread about that.
[marto]: Corion, some not too serious issues with the kids, hopefully, other than that just dealing with commuting by car again in the winter, not much fun so far, and there's no real 'bad' weather yet :)
[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
