PAR::Packer(3) 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.


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.
