how to create executibles for a perl program

I have created a perl program. I want to create a .exe file for that. I plan to put the .exe file online for our customers to simply download the file and run their scripts from there.
I work on a sun solaris system. I have been searching on the web to find  any software that can convert my perl programs to perl.exe.
What software can I use that will convert my perl program

#! /usr/local/bin/perl

print "this is a test program";

into and executible file.
OR is there a command in perl/unixz that would do the same function i.e. give me a binary/executible file for the above program so that i can use the executable rather then using my perl script.
 
thanks

.exe are Windows executables, not UNIX. Most Soalris systems should come with Perl already installed.

on UNIX simply do a
   chmod +x your-perl-script
and make shure the very first line in your-per-script looks like:

#! /usr/bin/perl

where /usr/bin/perl is the full path to the perl interpreter (may be found using:  which perl)
