The failure to clean up is causing me a specific problem. When I distribute a new version of a PAR file, PAR will still use the old cached version. I have a very ugly workaround but it is not a solution. If I have a PAR file called foo.par which provides a class Foo, I can force it to clean up by calling it with: $ENV{PAR_CLEAN} = 1; eval 'use PAR "foo.par"'; use Foo; But I'm producing an SDK and cannot force users to call it in this way. Can we have a working clean flag please? Doug.

The clean options appear to work when running with parl, but not with "use PAR ..."
