As discussed in chatter, the benefits of compilation using perlcc are that you can claim it is compiled and waste disk space. There are no performance benefits (indeed loading time generally increases), it wastes memory, and introduces new bugs...

So why do it?

I wouldn't know because I don't. :-)
