in reply to Data files in a .par file

PAR files are just Zip files, have you tried using Archive::Zip to extract the data file?

    Yes, a possible solution is to not use PAR at all! You can replace:
    use PAR; use lib 'Bam-Kapow';
    (a.k.a. use PAR 'Bam-Kapow';) by:
    BEGIN { use Archive::Zip; my $zip = new Archive::Zip('Bam-Kapow.par'); $zip->extractTree('', 'shazam/'); use lib 'shazam/lib'; } END { use File::Path; rmtree 'shazam/'; }
    which produces the output:
    Using Bam::Kapow version 0.01 MOTD: Message of the day: PAR rules! Got Bam::Kapow from shazam/lib/Bam/Kapow.pm
    Of course, it would be nicer if PAR provided an option to do that, something like:
    use PAR 'extract';
    which would make it behave the same way it does when it's wrapped up in an executable.
