PAR (0.90) *****

I use PAR very often, because I have clients using Windows machines where they cannot install Perl. With PAR I can develop the applications on my own machine and deploy them to the clients' machine.

The documentation is very good and helped me several times.

As the author of PAR, I can't really give unbiased opinions; but I'd like to think that while ease-of-use still may need a bit of work, it has been been very useful for myself. Thanks to all the contributors for making it happen!

PAR (0.90) *****

I needed to get a script running on someone else's mac and couldn't be bothered to install the developer CD and then the modules I needed, so I use PAR and it just worked! - This is a fantastic module if you are distributing code - wish I'd know about it sooner.

No comment, just a request that this module refer to the App::Packer::* suite and perhaps even does a comparison/benchmark...?

PAR (0.73) *****

it's just incredible useful :-)

PAR (0.92)

(Update: I have since picked up PAR as a maintainer and thus removed the rating. I'm keeping the old text as it still applies to Audrey's work!)

Audrey did a good job with PAR. It's great!

Personally, I have been waiting for something along the lines of perlapp/perl2exe (or perhaps even a working perlcc) to be released as open source. PAR exceeded my expectations in that it is much more flexible and powerful than I would have dreamed.
