in reply to Compiling wxperl with pp?

Out of curiousity - why do Perl/Tk programs work without special effort being put in, but wxperl programs don't?

    If you compile Wx statically (like Tk), it would take the same exact amount of effort. PAR doesn't scan for external dlls well (or at all?). Wx::Perl::Packager compensates for this, saves you from manually -adding dlls like
    pp -c -v -a wxbase28u_gcc_custom.dll -a wxmsw28u_adv_gcc_custom.dll -a + wxmsw28u_core_gcc_custom.dll -e " use Wx; print Wx::wxVERSION_STRING +,qq!\n!"
