in reply to Re^3: Win32 development
in thread Win32 development
call me a cynic, but par is never that easy. i find i have to say a prayer first, throw salt over my shoulder, and avoid full moons when using it ... and then, if i am lucky, par works 3 out of 4 times. i find old par .exes which used to run stop doing so. par programs which used to compile on one xp box don't on another. i know i sound like complainer, which isn't my intent. par is great, the concept is great, the fact the bundling works is an amazing technical feat, the fact the bundle is a zip file which can be dissected is damn cool too. i like par. i try to use par. most of time i can use it successfully. but par is, by its nature, much less reliable than typical of most perl technologies (which almost never hiccup). not a complaint, not a rant, just my opinion.
