PerlSharp Released. Shrink Perl Source 95% And Make Perl Faster 100% Edit Delete Reply with quote Quote
First Post Posted on: 11-26-09 07:40 AM last post first post

Greatings everyone,

Today Sep 4, 2005 we released a free product called PerlSharp. PerlSharp is a small Perl script that you can use to shrink your perl scripts and programs by may be 95% of the original size. You use also PerlSharp script to reduce your all perl modules installed on your server to make Perl loads and runs faster may be by 100%.

What PerlSharp do is, parses and reformat the Perl source code like MS Visual Basic do, remove all comments, POD text blocks, unncessessary semicolons, extra spaces, tabs, multiple blank lines and more.

This process will reduce some Perl modules and scripts by may be more than 95% of the original size. This makes Perl loads these modules and scripts faster 100%.

Click here to view the results log on our local server for http://www.mewsoft.com/download/PerlSharpLog.txt

Here is how touse is

Download the script from our site here http://www.mewsoft.com/Downloads/

C:\>perl perlsharp.cgi
Usage:
perlsharp.cgi -p To Process current working full Perl installation
perlsharp.cgi -d directories... To Process all files in [directories]
perlsharp.cgi -r directories... To Process files recursively in [directories]
perlsharp.cgi -f Files... To Process Files

1) - Use PerlSharp to Shrink your server installed Perl

You need to run this from your DOS prompt or from Telnet or terminal window. You can not run this from browser since this process make take more than 20 minutes.

from the prompt type:

perl PerlSharp.cgi -p

This command will let PerlSharp search all include directories of the currently working and installed Perl version and process all the modules and scripts. These directories are the perl @INC directories and all their sub directories tree.

PerlSharp will write the log to the screen and to a text file called PerlSharpLog.txt that you can view.

To run this you must login to your server or PC as a root user or server administrator rights.

Here is the first few lines of the process log:

and here is the last line in the process:

Total Size: 24527530, Total New Size: 11884043, Total Ratio: 52%

so you see how the PerlSharp reduced the all perl modules.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is example on how to Sharpen our Auctionawy or Classifiedawy:
assuming you extracted the Auctionawy to your local computer at C:\Auctionawy.

Nowenter this command from the DOS window:

C:\>perl PerlSharp.cgi -d C:/Auctionawy/auction/cgi-bin/auction

The -d command will process files under the same directories but will not recursively process sub directories

The -r command will process directories recursively.

Thank you
