in reply to Can I get compiled code in Perl like in Java(class file)

If your client is running Windows, ActiveState's Perl Dev Kit allows you to compile into an executable or even an ActiveX object (cringe). This is a commercial solution, so you would have to shell out a few $$ for it. Another option is Perl2Exe, which has versions for Win32 and various flavors of Unix. The "lite" version appears to be freeware.

Bear in mind that I haven't tried either of these options myself, so I can't speak for their pros/cons. Just passing along the information ...

    I have used both of these, and when it comes to win32, a great many people have trouble with the likes of perlcc, so it does have a use. I would like to mention, as before, that this is only faux security at best, but i imagine that, as stated elewhere in the thread, there is some oh-so-pointy-haired-polotics at work here. For the ActiveState exe solution, i would point to this node for some info on it's secutiry specifically.
    from the frivolous to the serious
      I have not tried perlcc but I did try the ActiveState solution. First, it requires that you have Windows 2000. (A problem in our corporate environment.) So I tried to install it at home. No such luck. I found that Perl2Exe did work, yet it's kind of a small shop supporting it.
