I have used this several times in the past and was in awe at the 'magic factor'.
I have found that it doesn't always work in every situation but when it does work, it's just awesome! I used it today for the first time in a long time and it worked perfectly, it saved me from having to do a source repo install of many perl files to just pushing one exe! Great work, Many Thanks!
PAR::Packer, and 'pp' in particular, are nothing short of brilliance. In the course of a lunch-break, I was able to go from having a tangle of code that relied upon so many exotic dependencies that it was impossible to install on another machine, to having a beautiful, single .exe that could be dropped onto a bare Windows desktop and double-clicked.
If you've been suffering from dependency headaches when deploying your code, then 'pp' can provide swift and effective relief. It's better than chocolate.
