RE: question about perl executable and functions

If you are using a Windows OS, goto www.activeperl.com and download their Perl Development Kit 2.0.
There is a way to convert perl files into executables (dependent or free-standing). I think the file name is PerlApp.pl (Usage is pathtoperlapp\PerlApp.pl -w Filename.pl -e ExecutableName.exe -d [for dependant] OR -f [for free-standing].

I think you will have to purchase a license to convert perl files into free-standing files.

Have Fun.

RE: question about perl executable and functions

There is also another great tool called perl2exe. I think that you can get it at www.perl2exe.com. The trial version compliles programs into exe's, but will open then close in 2 seconds. You can buy the full version for around 40 or 50 bucks.

The program is a command line converter, so you have to be running a Window's OS. I am not sure if they make it for any other operating system.

Hope this helps.
