Compiling Perl

The perl executable itself (the interpreter) is available precompiled from http://strawberryperl.com/. Avoid other precompiled Versions since most of them become a pain as soon as you want to compile your own CPAN modules.

Perl scripts - programs you write in the Perl language - can not be compiled like C or C++ programs, Perl is not meant for that. But you can package the script, dependent modules and the perl.exe into a single .exe file which will mostly behave like a stand alone executable. You can do that using the PAR::Packer module. Doing this however does not give you any performance improvement and startup times can be quite long.
