Perl Dev Kit 8.0 adds cross-platform wrapping, more

updated 04:20 pm EDT, Fri March 13, 2009

Perl Dev Kit 8.0 ships

ActiveState has launched Perl Dev Kit 8.0, adding cross-platform wrapping in PerlApp, for deployment to any platform regardless of the development platform. Perl Dev Kit (PDK) includes a complete suite of tools for creating and deploying Perl applications. Version 8.0 also introduces PerlCritic, which allows developers to run coding policies against source code in order to ensure work conforms to industry standards, or user-based personalized standards. Other tools in PDK build code filters, convert VBScript programs or snippets to Perl, analyze code coverage, create ActiveX controls and more. Further included is a graphical debugger.

PDK 8.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4, along with ActivePerl 5.8.0.818 or later for Perl 5.8 support, and ActivePerl 5.10.0.1001 or later for Perl 5.10 support. The software can also be used with Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX. Licenses typically cost $295 for one user, or $1,180 in a five-pack. Special March pricing drops prices to $245 and $995, respectively.
