App::FatPacker(3) pack your dependencies onto your script file


$ fatpack pack >

Or, with more step-by-step control:

  $ fatpack trace
  $ fatpack packlists-for `cat fatpacker.trace` >packlists
  $ fatpack tree `cat packlists`
  $ fatpack file >

See the documentation for the fatpack script itself for more information.

The programmatic API for this code is not yet fully decided, hence the 0.x release version. Expect that to be cleaned up for 1.0.
