Module Version: 1.01   Source   Latest Release: perl-5.8.9

NAME ^

B::Bytecode - Perl compiler's bytecode backend

SYNOPSIS ^

perl -MO=Bytecode[,-H][,-oscript.plc] script.pl

DESCRIPTION ^

Compiles a Perl script into a bytecode format that could be loaded later by the ByteLoader module and executed as a regular Perl script.

EXAMPLE ^

    $ perl -MO=Bytecode,-H,-ohi -e 'print "hi!\n"'
    $ perl hi
    hi!

OPTIONS ^

-b

Save all the BEGIN blocks. Normally only BEGIN blocks that require other files (ex. use Foo;) are saved.

-H

prepend a use ByteLoader VERSION; line to the produced bytecode.

-k

keep the syntax tree - it is stripped by default.

-ooutfile

put the bytecode in <outfile> instead of dumping it to STDOUT.

-s

scan the script for # line .. directives and for <goto LABEL> expressions. When gotos are found keep the syntax tree.

KNOWN BUGS ^

NOTICE ^

There are also undocumented bugs and options.

THIS CODE IS HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
