in reply to PAR

Hey, I'm happy this tool helps you. How about 1 or 2 more sentences about what it is, what it does, CPAN links, anything at all? All i see is that it archives perl scripts.

Thanks, --bibo

    What does Just like cc, pp turns your Perl file (and all called modules) into an executable. It's not actually compiling them, just packaging them up (and compressing) mean to you? Do you not understand executable? PAR
      Thanks for the clarification.

      Somehow, I had the understanding this was a REVIEW. If you are reviewing a product for others, I guess my expectation would be that you describe the product, give some background, explain why anyone would use it, etc. I am happy to apologize for my error and my ignorance about the wonders of PAR. It sounds great.

      Mea Culpa --bibo
