gepebril69 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I'm using pp to create executables of my projects to make them easily transferred to other machines and a little more difficult to steel my code.

As the projects get bigger it takes longer before executables are created, what I would like and not have found yet is that executables are only created when the source (pl) has been changed. So executables are not recreated when no changes to sources have been made.

Is this possible within pp, or is there a way to do this?

sample, of code:

pp -o name.exe --link=C:\strawberry\c\bin\libmysql_.dll -x -c -vvv
