The FAQ of PAR FAQ
There is a switch that only works on windows, --icon MyIcon.ico. So just use this:
% pp --icon "c:\path to\MyIcon.ico" -o file.exe file.pl
And the PAR::Packer FAQ
Unlike Perl2EXE, which can use a standard 16-color bitmap as an application icon, PAR requires a true Windows icon file.
Download a trial version of Microangelo and use that to create your .ico file.
The latest Netpbm tools at http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/ has ppmtowinicon,
which can take a pbm and convert it to a windows icon.
It is open source and has win32 ports.
Gimp for Windows can also create Windows icon files http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/.
But what is the exact .ico format needed to make it work ?
