In Windows this would be about converting a Perl script into an .exe. I want to do something similiar but into a Linux executable (which doesn't seem to have an extension). How can I do this or is there a particular program I need to use?
While I admit to being functionally illiterate in perl, wouldn't simply making the script executable with chmod essentially do the same thing? I know it wouldn't be a binary, but it would be executable.
This is very hard or impossible. Because Perl is an interpreted language with stuff like "eval", you would essentially have to include Perl along with your script. You would be better off writing your program in a compiled language like C++ or something. Also, there are few if any Linux users who don't have Perl.
Firstly I don't know any other language. Secondly I don't want to start learning a new language or I'll get confused. Thirdly you can easily make Perl scripts into Win32 executables so you can compile Perl.
Could you give me a link to this 'B' module? I can't seem to find anything about it (though it was only a quick look as I had work)
