What did you try with pp_autolink? Installation is via the standard process using tools like cpan or cpanm. The pp_autolink script will be installed in one of the bin dirs on your path. For a strawberry perl installed under C:\Strawberry it will be under C:\Strawberry\perl\site\bin. It can also be found using where pp_autolink at the cmd prompt.

In regards to the file sizes, extrapolation from a single data point is prone to a high degree of uncertainty.

A better test would be to pack three or more executables, each with increasing complexity and dependencies. I suspect you will the difference is fixed at 4MB, as opposed to a three to one ratio.

There is also the -z flag with pp to increase the compression level. The default is 6, and setting it to 9 will maximise the compression level and produce smaller files (see https://metacpan.org/pod/pp#-z,-compress=NUMBER). It makes almost no difference with a simple print 'hello' script, but will help with more complex set ups.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
