Pre-compiled Perl::Critic ?

2016-12-01 Thread Jim Reisert AD1C
Would it be possible to release a pre-compiled version of Perl::Critic? I built it yesterday from CPAN sources, and it took about nine *hours* to finish! The laptop I built it on has an Intel I7-6600U, 16 GB of memory and an SSD, so I don't know why it should have taken so long! Thanks - Jim
