in thread Perl 6 and exe

if you really want perl executable with any extension to be linked statically into the main executable

I don't understand. There is no perl executable if Perl is statically linked into your executable.

    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.
