venky4289 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


As i am aware the make program aids you in developing your large programs by keeping track of which portions of the entire program have been changed, compiling only those parts of the program which have changed since the last compile.

As we wont compile code in perl, But in Perl why do we need ?

Are there any differences between the make command in unix and the concept in perl ?
