PAR::Packer - PAR Packager


PAR::Packer - PAR Packager


This module implements the App::Packer::Backend interface, for generating stand-alone executables, perl scripts and PAR files.

Currently, this module is used by the command line tool pp internally, as well as by the contributed contrib/gui_pp/gpp program.

Since version 0.97 of PAR, this module and its related tools such as pp have been stripped from the PAR distribution and are now distributed as the PAR-Packer distribution so that PAR users need not necessarily have a C compiler.


PAR, pp

the App::Packer manpage, the App::Packer::Backend manpage


Mattia Barbon for taking the first step in refactoring pp into App::Packer::Backend::PAR, and Edward S. Peschko for continuing the work that eventually became this module.
