Creating a self executing perl program

by Ananda (Pilgrim)
on Dec 21, 2002 at 06:33 UTC ( #221584=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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

Hello Monks,

I have written a simple obfuscated program the generates/prints out a desired message , (this message is derived form a string of text). a little simple obfuscation used.

I desire to mail it friends,co workers, well wishers through mail. The point is if I send the program as a .pl file then all receivers must have perl installed on their systems. I desire that this program be executible even without the perl installed on the receivers maching.

I desire to know what it takes to acheive this.

I seek your kind assistance.

Thanks in advance.

CHEERS!!!!

Ananda

    I don't run the kind of mail reader that blindly executes things, but if I did, I'd regard that as a hostile act.

    Since I don't, I'd keep it as a memento of an attempted hostile act.

      I don't run the kind of mail reader that blindly executes things, but if I did, I'd regard that as a hostile act.

      I don't really see anything in the original post which indicates that the intent is for the program to be run automatically by the recipients mail reader. I think the poster just wants to know how to turn their perl program into a standalone executable.

      Maybe I'm wrong and there is more to it than that. If so, I have to add that I emphatically agree with you.
