POE and Activestate perlapp fail on MacOSX
Message ID:

I’m running Yosemite (MacOSX 10.10.5) on a MacPro (Mid 2010) and am trying to use ActiveState’s perlapp to create an executable perl script.

I have been successful in creating some perl scripts that don’t use POE, however when I try a script using POE, I get the following error:

perlapp --perl /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.20/bin/perl --verbose --clean --force --lib lib --exe mca
PerlApp 9.4.0 build 298593 (perl 5.14.0)

SV = IV(0x104012148) at 0x104012158
  REFCNT = 1

'' had compilation errors.

The contents of is as follows:

use warnings;
use strict;
use Tk;
use POE;

if(! defined($poe_main_window)) { die "\$poe_main_window not defined" };

This *MAY* have something to do with an issue about the POE::Loop that gets selected (read about it here <>), but I’m not sure.

How can I debug this?

Any help is much appreciated!
