Hi, I have prepared a simple script using "Curses::UI". This script is running normally from the command line. I can create a binary file using PAR: $ pp --verbose=0 --compress=9 --clean --bundle --par --filter=Bleach -o curses11.par $ pp curses11.par -o curses11 In run-time, I am getting the following error: $ ./curses11 Can't open Curses/UI/Language/ No such file or directory at Curses/UI/ line 96. I tryed to use the following switches: -M Curses/UI/Language/ and --link=/opt/perl5/cpan/lib/perl5/Curses/UI/Language/ but it did not help. The problem is that in file Curses/UI/ the following is done: 93 # Create a filehandle to the __DATA__ section 94 # of the language package. 95 local *LANG_DATA; 96 open(LANG_DATA, "< $l_file") or die "Can't open $l_file: $!"; This works only if Curses::UI package is installed locally on the machine, and file Curses/UI/Language/ is available locally. If package Curses::UI is not installed (and binary file prepared by PAR::Packer is used), then it is failing. The solution will be (maybe) to use package Curses::UI::Language::english from Curses::UI::Language package (not to load the file Curses/UI/Language/ directly. $ cat #!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use Curses::UI; my $cui = new Curses::UI ( -color_support => 1 ); my $win = $cui->add( "win", "Window", -border => 1, -y => 1, -title => "Title", ); my $tbox = $win->add( "textbox_0", "TextViewer", -fg => "white", -y => 1, -height => 2, -border => 1, -title => "Foo", -text => "test 123", ); $cui->set_binding( sub { exit(0); } , "\cC"); $tbox->focus(); $cui->mainloop(); ## end $ I am running the following: $ perl -v This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld Copyright 1987-2012, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source kit.
