in reply to Perl 6 and exe

perlcc is still disclaimed as being experimental.

Effective the next release of Perl 5,

perlcc, the byteloader and the supporting modules (B::C, B::CC, B::Bytecode, etc.) are no longer distributed with the perl sources. Those experimental tools have never worked reliably, and, due to the lack of volunteers to keep them in line with the perl interpreter developments, it was decided to remove them instead of shipping a broken version of those.

I heard perlcc stuff was actually slower than compiling Perl sources anyway, so there's no benefit packagers don't already provide.
