in thread "PAR'ing" XML configs?

Yes, but what OP needs is a way then, from the perl script, to know where the included file is in order to read it. This part of the FAQ led me to look at $ENV{PAR_TEMP} and see what the directory structure was and where the added test.txt was placed.
# pp -o a.exe -a test.txt open FILE, $ENV{PAR_TEMP} . "/inc/" . "test.txt"; while(<FILE>){ print; } close FILE;

    That's it. Thanks!

    Everything is extraced under the $ENV{PAR_TEMP}/inc/. I was able to successfully create a test script using the following:

    <opt date="test> <test>This is a test</test> <company id="test" /> </opt>
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use XML::Simple; use Data::Dumper; my $xml = new XML::Simple; my $ret = $xml->($ENV{'PAR_TEMP'} . "/inc/test.xml"); print Dumper($ret);
    Compiled with: pp -o test.exe -a test.xml

    Moved the PAR package to another directory and ran it. It ran successfully.

    I guess for testing, one can check to see if PAR_TEMP is set. If it's not, assume a command line run else assume PAR run, since the PATH to your file will definatly be different based on a PAR or command line run.
