Sometime you may want create standalone executables in perl.
You code is in Perl not in C. Well, have you ever heard about "perlcc" ? Take a look:

root@scarface:~# cat #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict ; my $web = "perlmonks rocks !" ; print "$web\n" ; root@scarface:~# perlcc -o test root@scarface:~# ./test perlmonks rocks !
Depend on the code it may not work as well, but in almost cases it can be used.
root@scarface:~# file test* test: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dy +namically a /usr/bin/perl -w script text executable
Remember, perlcc is an experimental program, don`t use it for production.

Edit BazB: reformatted, changed code tags slightly.

    As I understand pp from PAR module is far more reliable and up-to-date. I have been using it without any difficulties with small scripts on Windows and Unix.
