That begs the question, "why did you add these files if they are unnecessary"?


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    I got the additional data from a config management tool. And this tool added ".metadata" folders which I don't want to have in the par packed executable.

    The error when creating the executable was not to delete the ".metadata" folders before.

    Now it's just technically interesting for me to see how I could change a self extractable archive like a par packed executable.
