compiler.pl (compile in binary format for Linux) is a simple
script which uses Malcolm's Beatie's Perl compiler (alpha version
3 is available in CPAN).
Perl is widely used in Biology and when you want to distribute
your perl codes in C compiled binary versions, you can use
Perl compiler. You can hide how badly you coded in Perl in
It does the one step compilation. Perl compiler produces C source
code and then compiles to binary(2 steps with options you have
to look up every time).
Usage: compile.pl foo.pl -O2 -m486
-O2 and -m486 are C compilation options which you can omit.
Usage: compile foo.pl -O2 -m486
when you compiled compile.pl to compile.
Malcolm's compiler is so far working perfectly for my
programs in Linux. It is a great piece of work.
