perl-PAR

Perl Archive Toolkit

This module lets you use special zip files, called *P*erl *Ar*chives, as libraries from which Perl modules can be loaded. It supports loading XS modules by overriding *DynaLoader* bootstrapping methods; it writes shared object file to a temporary file at the time it is needed. A _.par_ file is mostly a zip of the _blib/_ directory after the build process of a CPAN distribution. To generate a _.par_ file yourself, all you have to do is compress the modules under _arch/_ and _lib/_, e.g.: % perl Makefile.PL % make % cd blib % zip -r mymodule.par arch/ lib/ Afterward, you can just use _mymodule.par_ anywhere in your '@INC', use *PAR*, and it will Just Work. Support for generating _.par_ files is going to be in the next (beyond 0.2805) release of Module::Build. For convenience, you can set the 'PERL5OPT' environment variable to '-MPAR' to enable 'PAR' processing globally (the overhead is small if not used); setting it to '-MPAR=/path/to/mylib.par' will load a specific PAR file. Alternatively, consider using the _par.pl_ utility bundled with the PAR::Packer distribution, or using the self-contained _parl_ utility which is also distributed with PAR::Packer on machines without PAR.pm installed. Note that self-containing scripts and executables created with _par.pl_ and _pp_ may also be used as _.par_ archives: % pp -o packed.exe source.pl # generate packed.exe (see PAR::Packer) % perl -MPAR=packed.exe other.pl # this also works % perl -MPAR -Ipacked.exe other.pl # ditto Please see SYNOPSIS for most typical use cases.
