I had previously followed the pp_simple link. It took me to a page of code from Anonymous Monk which does not run because "wxpar" was not found, and seemed to have nothing to do with pp_simple. I had also previously looked at App::PP::Autolink in CPAN. The examples showed using "pp_simple program-name", but said nothing about what pp_simple is or where/how to get it.

Thanks again for the suggestions, but unfortunately this has become as frustrating and tedious as trying to get "pp" to produce a working executable in the first place. Right now, life is too short to keep going down rabbit trails, especially when I installed perl2exe, ran it, and got the working executable I was after. It just works.

The monetary price of "pp", et al is certainly right ($0.00), but the price in terms of time spent trying to get it to work and the accompanying frustration is just too high right now. The price I invested in purchasing perl2exe is worth every cent.

As an aside, I created a Perl program that simply printed "Hello, world!" and ran it through both pp and perl2exe. The pp executable was 6 MB and the perl2exe executable was 2 MB. I realize disk space is cheap these days, but extrapolated out for many programs much larger than 1 print statement, the space savings become significant. Yet one more reason to prefer perl2exe.

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.
