in thread pp module messes encoding

PerlApp is a utility included in Perl Dev Kit (PDK), a commercial or 21-day free trial version of which can be downloaded here at I've also tried Cava Packager, the author of which provides a fully working free-of-charge non-commericial licence, and the resulting executable can also produce a readable text file. Cava Packager can be downloaded here at

For your reference, my testing environment is as follows: Windows XP SP3 ActiveState Perl 5.10.0 Par::Packer 1.002 PerlAPP 8.1 Cava Packager

    Thank you very very very very much (no copy pasting !).
    This was by far the most effort invested, thought out, informative, clear and practical reply I ever got about perl.

    I got the cava (long and painful install but it's over now), and it works (finally).
    Not sure how my 45.8KB file became so many MB-s ^^.
    It probably includes some unnecessary data, but I can't figure it out yet.
    (maybe I'll post this as another question)

    But the most important thing is that it finally works (thx again).
