perlcc - generate executables from Perl programs
$ perlcc hello # Compiles into executable a.out
$ perlcc -o hello hello.pl # Compiles into executable hello
$ perlcc -O file # Compiles using the optimised C backend
$ perlcc -B file # Compiles using the bytecode backend
$ perlcc -c file # Creates a C file, file.c
$ perlcc -S -o hello file # Creates a C file, file.c,
# then compiles it to executable hello
$ perlcc -c out.c file # Creates a C file, out.c from file
$ perlcc -e print q// # Compiles a one-liner into a.out
$ perlcc -c -e print q// # Creates a C file a.out.c
$ perlcc -I /foo hello # extra headers (notice the space after -I)
$ perlcc -L /foo hello # extra libraries (notice the space after -L)
$ perlcc -r hello # compiles hello into a.out, runs a.out.
$ perlcc -r hello a b c # compiles hello into a.out, runs a.out.
# with arguments a b c
$ perlcc hello -log c # compiles hello into a.out logs compile
# log into c.
perlcc creates standalone executables from Perl programs, using the
code generators provided by the B module. At present, you may either
create executable Perl bytecode, using the "-B" option, or generate and
compile C files using the standard and optimised C backends.
The code generated in this way is not guaranteed to work. The whole
codegen suite ("perlcc" included) should be considered very experimen
tal. Use for production purposes is strongly discouraged.
Adds the given directories to the library search path when C code
is passed to your C compiler.
Adds the given directories to the include file search path when C
code is passed to your C compiler; when using the Perl bytecode
option, adds the given directories to Perls include path.
-o output file name
Specifies the file name for the final compiled executable.
-c C file name
Create C code only; do not compile to a standalone binary.
-e perl code
Compile a one-liner, much the same as "perl -e ..."
-S Do not delete generated C code after compilation.
-B Use the Perl bytecode code generator.
-O Use the optimised C code generator. This is more experimental
than everything else put together, and the code created is not
guaranteed to compile in finite time and memory, or indeed, at all.
-v Increase verbosity of output; can be repeated for more verbose out
-r Run the resulting compiled script after compiling it.
Log the output of compiling to a file rather than to stdout.
