in thread perl2exe - no more secrets

perl is already written in C, and its has been optimized for years. I see no theoretical reasons why a native compiler produces a faster split function than perl already has. Or faster hashes. Or faster whatever.

Compiling to "native code" isn't going to run your Perl code faster. Unless you are going to sacrifice the flexibility Perl gives you. But then, it's no longer a Perl compiler.
