Hi, The PAR::Tutorial suggests using upx to reduce exe sizes however this no
longer seems to work:When I run the upx generated executable I get the
following error messages:
IO error: reading header signature :
at -e line 603.
IO error: reading header signature :
at -e line 595.
...

File exists; Cannot create a file when that file already exists at
C:/strawberry/perl/vendor/lib/Archive/Zip/Archive.pm line 196. Note I get
similar errors with older versions of upx so if upx has worked before (as
implied by PAR::Tutorial) the issue might be with "new magic" used by PAR. For
more details see: https://github.com/upx/upx/issues/289
