Perl2Exe is commercial, command-line application that can build standalone executables from perl sources. It works by creating an executable that contains
- A standalone perl interpreter (that is capable of grokking perl 5.8.x)
- Your perl script and
- All perl modules that are referenced by your perl script.
pp - PAR Packager provides that same functionality, but is free.
