perl-Urlader - unknown
||ALT Linux Sisyphus
Urlader (that's german for "bootloader" btw.) was created out of
frustration over PAR always being horribly slow, again not working, again
not being flexible enough for simple things such as software upgrades, and
again causing mysterious missing file issues on various platforms.
That doesn't mean this module replaces PAR, in fact, you should stay with
PAR for many reasons right now, user-friendlyness is one of them.
However, if you want to make single-file distributions out of your perl
programs (or python, or C or whatever), and you are prepared to fiddle
a LOT, this module might provide a faster and more versatile deployment
technique then PAR. Well, if it ever gets finished.
Also, *nothing in this module is considered very stable yet*, and it's
far from feature-complete.
Having said all that, Urlader basically provides three services:
=item A simple archiver that packs a directory tree into a single file.
=item A small C program that works on windows and unix, which unpacks an attached
archive and runs a program (perl, python, whatever...).
=item A perl module support module (*this one*), that can be used to query
the runtime environment, find out where to install updates and so on.
