If you're one of the many Komodo users who also uses the Perl Development Kit, you may have noticed that the Tools | Build Standalone Applicaton menu, quite frankly, doesn't.

That menu entry was designed to work with earlier (5.x and before) versions of the PDK, and is quite broken when you try to use it with PDK 6.x.  Komodo does, however, ship with an extension that provides equivalent functionality for PDK 6.x.

In Komodo, choose File | Open | File... and go to your Komodo installation directory.  From that point, open the lib/support/modules/perldevkit.xpi file.  Click the "Install" button on the dialog that appears, then restart Komodo.

When you restart Komodo, you will notice the new Tools | Perl Dev Kit submenu.  You can access all available PDK functionality on your platform from that menu.  For example, to build standalone applications, select Tools | Perl Dev Kit | PerlApp.
