( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks for the good question, Courage; I should have mentioned that. I can't really give an authoritative answer about the internals of App::Packer, but I'll tell you what I know :-)

App::Packer does use compression. My guess is that the main perl file and the module sources are all inside the executable file, in a compressed form. Smaller apps (I quickly tried one that uses a very small test module) don't seem to create temporary files. However, another app I "packaged" that uses Wx, XML::Parser and File::Spec) creates three temporary DLL files upon startup.

Hope that helps...

By the way -- thanks to the perl monks for the warm reception of this tutorial. I asked myself whether I should write it or not, and then decided to just do it, even if it is just to get it sorted out for myself again. The response encouraged me to be not so hesitant in the future.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
