    How do I create an executable Javascript program?

    Hello!

    I'm a beginning Javascript programmer. I'd like to compile my Javascript program into an executable file, and offer it to other users as a "stand alone" program.

    As I understand it, this basically involves compiling the HTML source using one of those "e-book" compilers.

    Can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced, tool for the job? And are there any special considerations to be aware of?

    Thank you so much!

    Javascript is an interpreted, not a compiled, language and cannot be made into an executable.

    I should say that if you look around you will find a zillion scripts (many of considerable sophistication) offered for nothing on this and several other sites. I doubt if anyone will wish to buy the output of a "beginning JavaScript programmer".

    You can still make javascirpt products though - APIs and so forth which you license for use on other peoples' sites.
