  • by tex (949) <texNO@SPAMbombshelter.ca> on 2003.01.22 8:50 (#16265)

    From http://www.autrijus.org/par-intro/slide002.html

    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
      • Version consistency: solves forward-compatibility problems
    • You can also turn a PAR file into a self-contained script
      • Bundles all necessary 3rd-party modules with it
      • Requires only core Perl to run on the target machine
      • If you use perlcc to compile the script...
      • ...you get an executable not even needing core perl

    • I bookmarked this sometime ago.
      However it just occurred to me,
      this is a suboptimal name.
