in reply to Slashdot Headline Grabber for *nix

You have to realize that my original code was not written for simplicity by using modules; it was designed to make the smallest possible .exe file when compiled. So I did away with LWP::Simple and used Socket because it saved 200K. I don't know how many extra kilobytes would have been used by the XML:RSS module, but I'm betting it's a lot more than are used by 3 or 4 lines worth of regexs.

    Who compiles to ".exe" files?

    If you want to share your cool new GUI Perl app with other Windoze users it doesn't seem likely that they will want to install Perl on their system just to run your app.
