in reply to PAR / Apache::PAR Test Drive

...I created a script to pull in my existing files (or update in the future) to create my par..

Is there a particular reason why you didn't use (symbolic) links to set up your shadow tree at the final location? Copying files always has the danger of getting out of sync, whereas links do not have that problem. Unless you purposely want to be able to get out of sync.

Just wondering.

    There are dozens of methods/techniques that could be used, copying to a new clean physical directory was mine. I can now symlink the old locations back to the new content if I want to use the packages outside of a PAR. Furthermore I think it is better to use a physical location when explaining a concept that might be used on platforms that don't support symbolic links. But at the time of the writing and creating my script it simple made sense to me, but I encourage others to do what makes sense for their environment/mindset.
