Subject: Including PAR:Packer 1.014 in Strawberry-Perl
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 585b
I'd like to vote for the inclusion of PAR::Packer in the Straberry-Perl Distribution. Since version 1.014, PAR::Packer compiles and tests cleanly. Strawberry-Perl aim to be a hassle-free windows distribution of Perl, and PAR::Packer would enable Strawberry to build Windows executables with a single line. In my opinion, this would be a great addition to Strawberry, as you don't usually have Perl on any machine besides the developer's. Having an easy method to compile and distribute scripts makes Strawberry so much more useable in Windows environments. Regards, Oliver Fitz
Thanks for your suggestion.

Just 2 comments:

1/ adding PAR::Packer means extra 8-9MB (approx 3-4MB zipped) - I am not saying it is a blocker but it matters

2/ PAR::Packer does not pass tests on portable straberry perl (on non-portable it is ok) - I'll try to investigate more about this

I will consider including PAR::Packer into 5.18.x series (which means May 2013)

Dear Strwaberry Perl Maintainers, Please try to include Par::Packer into the standard distribution. It seems when you change the bundled gcc version the list of dlls to include changes and breaks the PAR::Packer capability of generating stand alone executable bundles. This capability is very useful to build distributable Perl applications on Windows. I already reposted this issue on the PAR::Packer bug list but it would have been caught earlier if it was included.

I am gonna merge your request with already existing RT 83608

But keep in mind that PAR::Packer has to inslall and pass all tests on strawberry perl before we include it in strawberry perl. Some time ago when I tried to build PAR::Packer on strawberry perl it was not without troubles

PAR::Packer is probably a huge feature for building Perl applications in windows as Perl is not a standard piece of windows almost anywhere. PAR::Packer is tricky to install because it makes assumptions on the compiler infrastructure. Every time you make a mayor gcc update it will most likely break and that is why you should not leave that install to the regular users. There has to be better interaction between your team and PAR::Packer to allow the module to find out which shared libraries must be included to make the package succeed in the tests. It is a chicken and egg situation that can ruin both efforts. Regards, Sergio Show quoted text
