    What is PAR (Perl Archive Toolkit)?

    • Do what JAR (Java Archive) does for Perl
      • Platform-independent, compressed file format (zip)
      • Aggregates modules, scripts and other files into one file
      • Easy to generate, update and extract
    • Benefit of using PAR:
      • Decreased download and deployment time
      • Saves disk space by compression and selective packaging
