I don't get it. What exactly are you asking for?
Perl is an interpreted language. And all of the versions I know of are free.
Are you looking for a native code compiler for Perl?

Is the compiler your usuing Perl2Exe??

I used to have that, it adds a tag to the end of your prog anyways.

There is a simple and a hard way to get rid of the demo tag.


Search for a crack, i found one in a few mins.


Buy It and help perl coders :p

Its up to you :)

ActivePerl (http://www.activeperl.com/Products/Download/Get.plex?id=ActivePerl)

I think I read somewhere one time that with certain conventions you can compile perl code with an ANSI C compiler. Is this true? I don't know this could just be another flashback.

PERL is an interpreted language. It's designed for quickly scripting system admin type jobs or CGI stuff. If you really want a program to be a .exe then you really should use a compiled language like C or C++. PERL is very slow in comparison and is really designed for jobs where making a C program is not really necessary.

Ah I see, thanks for clearing that one up. As you can tell I have no experience with PERL :D I went back found the article I was talking about. It was discussing writing a program that parses in two different languages. Basically, a Perl program which compiles as C code. Pretty interesting.
