Based on recent work on the B::C module, it's now possible to build a working binary which can do away with the majority of startup expense a typical perl program would have. In this talk, I'll explain: - What the perlcc compiler does and doesn't do. - How to setup the perl compiler. - How to pre-compile a perl script into a binary for faster execution. - Discuss the common mistakes one makes when building a perl binary and how to work around them.
