Create and manipulate PAR distributions
This module creates and manipulates PAR distributions. They are architecture-specific PAR files, containing everything under blib/ of CPAN distributions after their “make” or “Build” stage, a META.yml describing metadata of the original CPAN distribution, and a MANIFEST detailing all files within it. Digitally signed PAR distributions will also contain a SIGNATURE file.
The naming convention for such distributions is
For example, “PAR-Dist-0.01-i386-freebsd-5.8.0.par” corresponds to the 0.01 release of “PAR-Dist” on CPAN, built for perl 5.8.0 running on “i386-freebsd”.
