NAME
tkpp - frontend to pp written in Perl/Tk SYNOPSIS
tkpp DESCRIPTION
Tkpp is a GUI frontend to pp, which can turn perl scripts into stand-alone PAR files, perl scripts or executables. Below is a short explanation of all available screen elements; it is also displayed from the "Help" - "Help Contents" menu item. Source file The file you want to pack. Output file (--output, --par, --perlscript) The file you want the source file packed as. This option recognizes the ".par", ".pl" and executable extensions, and supplies the corresponding build option automatically. Use icon (--icon) The icon file you want your output file to use. This option will only work when building Microsoft Windows ".exe" files. Currently, this option only accepts ".ico" files. Add modules/files (--add) Add the specified items into the package, along with their dependencies. Multiple items should be separated by a comma (",") or semicolon (";"). Exclude modules (--exclude) Exclude the given module from the dependency search path and from the package. Multiple modules should be separated by a comma (",") or semicolon (";"). Scan dependencies (--compile, --execute, --noscan) Specify the dependency scanning method to use. See pp for explanations of the options. GUI (--gui) Build an executable that does not have a console window. This option is only applicable on Microsoft Windows, and is ignored when the output file is a ".par" file. Log (--log) Log the output of packaging to a file. The log file, tkpp.log, will be written in the user's home directory. Verbose (--verbose) Increase verbosity of output; from 1 to 3, 3 being the most verbose. This option is ignored if logging is not enabled. Build Starts building the package. File Menu->Preferences Specify the location to perl and pp. They must be set before Tkpp will build anything. The Tkpp configuration file, .tkpprc, is stored in the user's home directory. NOTES

NAME
parl - Binary PAR Loader SYNOPSIS
(Please see pp for convenient ways to make self-contained executables, scripts or PAR archives from perl programs.) To make a PAR distribution from a CPAN module distribution: % parl -p # make a PAR dist under the current path % parl -p Foo-0.01 # assume unpacked CPAN dist in Foo-0.01/ To manipulate a PAR distribution: % parl -i Foo-0.01-i386-freebsd-5.8.0.par # install % parl -i http://foo.com/Foo-0.01 # auto-appends archname + perlver % parl -i cpan://AUTRIJUS/PAR-0.74 # uses CPAN author directory % parl -u Foo-0.01-i386-freebsd-5.8.0.par # uninstall % parl -s Foo-0.01-i386-freebsd-5.8.0.par # sign % parl -v Foo-0.01-i386-freebsd-5.8.0.par # verify To use Hello.pm from ./foo.par: % parl -A./foo.par -MHello % parl -A./foo -MHello # the .par part is optional Same thing, but search foo.par in the @INC; % parl -Ifoo.par -MHello % parl -Ifoo -MHello # ditto Run test.pl or script/test.pl from foo.par: % parl foo.par test.pl # looks for 'main.pl' by default, # otherwise run 'test.pl' To make a self-containing executable containing a PAR file : % parl -O./foo foo.par % ./foo test.pl # same as above To embed the necessary non-core modules and shared objects for PAR's execution (like "Zlib", "IO", "Cwd", etc), use the -b flag: % parl -b -O./foo foo.par % ./foo test.pl # runs anywhere with core modules installed If you also wish to embed core modules along, use the -B flag instead: % parl -B -O./foo foo.par % ./foo test.pl # runs anywhere with the perl interpreter This is particularly useful when making stand-alone binary executables; see pp for details. DESCRIPTION
This stand-alone command offers roughly the same feature as "perl -MPAR", except that it takes the pre-loaded .par files via "-Afoo.par" instead of "-MPAR=foo.par". Additionally, it lets you convert a CPAN distribution to a PAR distribution, as well as manipulate such distributions. For more information about PAR distributions, see PAR::Dist. You can use it to run .par files: # runs script/run.pl in archive, uses its lib/* as libraries % parl myapp.par run.pl # runs run.pl or script/run.pl in myapp.par % parl otherapp.pl # also runs normal perl scripts However, if the .par archive contains either main.pl or script/main.pl, it is used instead: % parl myapp.par run.pl # runs main.pl, with 'run.pl' as @ARGV Finally, the "-O" option makes a stand-alone binary executable from a PAR file: % parl -B -Omyapp myapp.par % ./myapp # run it anywhere without perl binaries With the "--par-options" flag, generated binaries can act as "parl" to pack new binaries: % ./myapp --par-options -Omyap2 myapp.par # identical to ./myapp % ./myapp --par-options -Omyap3 myap3.par # now with different PAR For an explanation of stand-alone executable format, please see par.pl.
