Whats the difference between your script and the regular perl.exe that links against the libraries anyways?

Nothing as it stands - except that this doesn't rely on the Perl source and is compilable by the C/make-challenged such as myself ;-)
Given the amount of general interest in distributing standalone perl-apps and responses to tools such as tinyperl (including yours!)...i thought this might be good news for some people - especially seeing as the code is portable to some extent.

Why not use miniperl or par?

Like i tried to say above...packaging apps is fine as it is, im not trying to make another perl2exe or PAR.

I guess what my meditation was; how far could you conceivably get just manually poking at the library without #including perl.h?
