Yes for PerlApp, no for PerlSvc, but as I've said before there are plenty of free utilities to let you wrap whatever the heck you want as a service.

PerlApp and perl2exe are pretty indistinguishable in my experience save three things:

  • Indy builds perl2exe on his machine with a really weird setup (think perl -V) and this can potentially bite you
  • perl2exe does some nasty stuff in the name of "DWIM" (at least for those not doing complex things). For example there is no way to get a runtime use, eval "use Foo"; does not work.
  • The perl2exe license gets tied to a username and must be run by that user.
  • --
    perl -pe "s/\b;([st])/'\1/mg"

      UGH! Talk about a very restrictive license! Well, needless to say I'll never use perl2exe. I'd much rather use the free tools, or pay ActiveState. I don't mind paying for commercial software that works and gives me a net benefit. But free is always good too. :-)

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
