Hi,

since some time, PAR unpacks only the used modules und give them more or 
less random names.

This makes a lot of trouble with modules, which access the lib directory 
or itself, e.g. for looking into the POD, searching some files or loading 
all available modules/plugins.

Modules with such troubles include DBIx::Class, XML::SAX, Getopt::Euclid 
and much more.

And it is also not as easy to include and load some extra files (-a to 
pp) in a .par, because extra code is needed to use this.


I don't know the real reason, why PAR unpacks the used modules not with 
their original path and name. But I strongly suggest to add an option, 
that allows to unpack all modules with correct path and name and which 
allows to unpack all files or a list of files/folders.

Both would make it much easyer to use PAR in real life applications!

Perhaps the is such an option, but I found nothing ...


Ciao
  Alvar
