Perl to executable


I know there exists a program which converts perl code to an executable in windows (perl2exe). Is there a similar program for linux??

I guess you mean, how to convert it to a binary version?

To make it executable, just make sure there's a shebang in the first line (#!/usr/bin/perl or whatever) and 'chmod u+x <perlscript>'.

I don't know how to make a compiled version, but try 'man perlrun'

yes sorry, the title is a bit misleading :/

What i meant is to make a binary version of perl so that people who do not have perl installed in their system, or some generic modules, would still be able to run the program.

I think perlcc may be what you're looking for.
