Compile a unix script with a completely independent binary

Medium Priority

How do I compile a script in UNIX that is not dependent on the shell environment? For example, if I use a program called SHC and script shell is PERL, then if the remote system does not have PERL I would still want the program to run. SHC does not support completely independent binaries and I need some way to package a script as a program.

Sorry, you need to have perl installed on the other box to be able to run your script, that's the natural of the shell programming, all the dependicies have to be in the other system before you can use them.  there is no tools for "Compile a unix script with a completely independent binary "
