in reply to Compile Perl???

From perlman:perlfaq3, in the section How can I compile my Perl program into byte code or C?:

"In general, the compiler will do nothing to make a Perl program smaller, faster, more portable, or more secure. In fact, it will usually hurt all of those. The executable will be bigger, your VM system may take longer to load the whole thing, the binary is fragile and hard to fix, and compilation never stopped software piracy in the form of crackers, viruses, or bootleggers."

Nevertheless, if you're curious, check it out.
