The fact that something is named *.exe doesn't mean it contains ONLY compiled code. The script is NOT really compiled by PerlApp. It's just packed up with some startup code, Perl interpreter, DLLs of the modules you need (if built as freestanding) and so forth. I do not think it's even compiled to bytecode before being stored in the EXE.
