Alien::BatToExeConverter - Convert a DOS Batch Script to an Executable
# Convert a batch script to an executable that won't show a DOS box Alien::BatToExeConverter::bat2exe( bat => 'C:\strawberry\perl\bin\foo.bat', exe => 'C:\strawberry\perl\bin\foo.exe', );
Bat_To_Exe_Converter.exe is a nice little Windows Freeware program, built from open source elements, that will take a batch script and convert it into an executable (both as a command-line form, and as a GUI form).
bat2exe function is used to locate the Bat_To_Exe_Converter.exe tool on the host. The Alien module will look in the local binary search path, and then if a local version can't be found, it will instead return the path to a bundled version.
# Convert a batch script to an executable that will have an icon, # won't show a DOS box, and will suppress to the command line. Alien::BatToExeConverter::bat2exe( bat => 'C:\strawberry\perl\bin\foo.bat', exe => 'C:\strawberry\perl\bin\foo.exe', ico => 'C:\strawberry\perl\bin\foo.ico', dos => 0, );
bat2exe function is used to execute Bat_To_Exe_Converter.exe and generate an executable from the batch script. It takes a series of named params, returning true on success or throwing an exception on failure. The default settings are intended to produce an .exe script for launching a GUI application.
bat param should be the name of the source batch script.
exe param should be the path to white the executable to, and must NOT already exist.
ico param will bind an icon to the executable.
dos param will indicate that the executable is intended for the command line. If
not supplied, STDOUT and STDERR will be supressed and a "DOS box" will not be shown on execution.
Bugs should be submitted via the CPAN bug tracker, located at
