in thread perl2exe - no more secrets

You're simplifying the argument a bit too much for my taste... What happens when you can't install perl on the target system(s) you wish to run the software on?

    Then you use PAR, as merlyn already pointed out.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      The PAR solution available is no argument for NOT using PerApp or perl2exe if it is just about being able to redistribute Perl software without Perl installation.

      That's just another way. Also (slightly) more complex if you are used to download ActiveState Perl Install-executables and use PPM for module installation.

      Q: Why did the Perlmonk cross the road?
      A: He wanted to escape the match.

        The PAR solution available is no argument for NOT using PerApp or perl2exe if it is just about being able to redistribute Perl software without Perl installation.
        Yes it is. Why pay for perlapp/perl2exe when you get PAR for free?
      i tried (hard) to install the PAR suite in my ActiveState Perl environment, with no luck. perl2exe works out of box, and allows me to deploy standalone scripts (while i would not be allowed to install perl). deploy, run, remove... i'd gladly switch to PAR, but it never worked for me.
