MakeMaker? Can't Post

What does MakeMaker do? And is it possible to create a stand-alone executable perl program?

MakeMaker (or, to give it its full name, ExtUtils::MakeMaker) is a module that helps module authors to create and package a distribution for their module which follows the CPAN standards. It is also used as part of the process that users follow when installing the module. These days it is gradually being replaced by Module::Build.

I think you should read the answer to the FAQ How can I compile my Perl program into byte code or C?
