PAR is a Perl framework which allows you to easily bundle a typical blib/
tree into a compressed file (currently a zip) called a Perl Archive. This
makes it fairly simple to redistribute, even providing support for loading
C/XS modules by overriding DynaLoader's bootstrapping methods. It writes a
shared object file to a temporary file at the time it is needed.
