I'd advise using pp over perlcc. See perlcc compile core dump and What happened to perlcc?.

    Hi, Is there any specific reason on why perlcc is not working after the perl version was enhanced to v5.8.0, also can you please tell me that what all things need to be installed for "pp" to work fine.

      If you read the links I gave you you'll find the quote:

      "The whole codegen suite (perlcc included) should be considered very experimental. Use for production purposes is strongly discouraged."

      see perlcc. You'll also find discussion about why perlcc died in the other links. pp is under active development, I have access to an old Solaris 10 system running perl 5.8.8 and have no problems creating executables using pp. to install pp and it's prerequisites use cpan:

      cpan pp
        Thanks a lot !! Will install pp and try running the command. Thanks once again.
        Your citations are wrong.

        perlcc did not die, it was rather enhanced, improved, it is used in production for over 10 years and is under continuous development.

        perlcc was just removed from core (p5p was not able to maintain it anymore).

        pp is no compiler, it is a packager.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
