OK crazyinsomniac! Great that you've set this up so far. A few
in reply to The Perl Compiler (turning perl scripts into binary executables)
Let's build a stable multiplatform compiler!
- ActiveState has PerlApp, which only runs on WinNT and only
creates executables for Win32 platforms
- IndigoSTAR has perl2exe
which runs on multiple platforms and creates executables for multiple platforms
- perlcc has been written by Malcolm Beattie and should
compile into C OR executable, but needs a C-compiler to actually create
the binary executable. And it's not stable. Far from that. I've tried it
on a Linux box with Perl 5.00503 and it failed to compile a simple
script that used a few modules.
Update:toma wondered if the goal would be to hide the
source of the perlscript by compiling it. This would be interesting
for commercial use, but it's not the goal as far as I'm concerned.
