I had in mind main perl executable but linked in such a way that it runs seamlessly (not from any application, we were talking of a way to create EXEs out from perl scripts from the very start.)

suppose you have script, which uses Bar:: and Fluffy:: XS extensions.
($^O equals to 'MSWin32' in my explanations)

You want to create foo.exe, much like PAR but with statical linking and w/o temporary unzips.

With an approach kept by me in mind (and by Ilya Zakharevich in mentioned link) you will result in:

  • perl58s.lib <- static library, which is not against perl58.dll, but rather all the code inside it
  • Bar.lib, Fluffy.lib <- same for extensions
  • <- to contain all text files with Perl scripts:, and required perl core library
  • perlmain.c from perl source distribution which contains RunPerl call, and link it against all mentioned libs
  • concatenate resulting EXE with like in Ilya's message
The resulting perl executable runs your and w/o temporaries.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
