NAME

App::FatPacker::Simple - only fatpack a script

SYNOPSIS

    > fatpack-simple script.pl

DESCRIPTION

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.

MOTIVATION

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 fatlib directory
(c) fatpack the script with modules in fatlib

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 carton or cpanm?

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
