App::FatPacker::Simple - only fatpack a script
$ fatpack-simple script.pl
App::FatPacker::Simple or its frontend
fatpack-simple helps you fatpack a script when YOU understand the whole dependencies of it.
For tutorial, please look at App::FatPacker::Simple::Tutorial.
App::FatPacker::Simple is an alternative for App::FatPacker's
fatpack file command. Let me explain why I wrote this module.
App::FatPacker brings more portability to Perl, that is totally awesome.
As far as I understand, App::FatPacker does 3 things:
- (a) trace dependencies for a script
- (b) collects dependencies to
- (c) fatpack the script with modules in
As for (a), I have often encountered problems. For example, modules that I don't want to trace trace, conversely, modules that I DO want to trace do not trace. Moreover a core module has changed interfaces or has been bug-fixed recently, so we have to fatpack that module with new version, etc. So I think if you author intend to fatpack a script, YOU need to understand the whole dependencies of it.
As for (b), to locate modules in a directory, why don't you use
So the rest is (c) to fatpack a script with modules in directories, on which App::FatPacker::Simple concentrates.
That is, App::FatPacker::Simple only fatpacks a script with features:
automatically perl-strip modules
has option to exclude some modules
