in reply to PAR binary with Storable works for a while then dies

As the AM mentioned, this is the tmp files. Many distributions have something like tmpwatch which automagically prunes "old" cruft from /var/tmp and /tmp to help promote system stability; running out of scratch space can lead to very bad things.

    Thanks. Based on AM's response I took another look at the PAR docs and found out about PAR_GLOBAL_TEMP. But I'm confused about whether that var needs to be set on the target machines or if I can just set it on the build machine. If I could set PAR_GLOBAL_TEMP to something like ~/tmp/par/program_name on the build machine and it would just work on the target machines that would be the best situation.

    I'll experiment with this when I get to work.
