NAME
       perlcc - generate executables from Perl programs

SYNOPSIS
	   $ 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'.

DESCRIPTION
       perlcc creates standalone executables from Perl programs, using the code generators pro-
       vided 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 experimental. Use for production purposes is
       strongly discouraged.

OPTIONS
       -Llibrary directories
	   Adds the given directories to the library search path when C code is passed to your C
	   compiler.

       -Iinclude directories
	   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
	   Perl's 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 output.

       -r  Run the resulting compiled script after compiling it.

       -log
	   Log the output of compiling to a file rather than to stdout.
