NAME ^

wxpar

VERSION ^

Version 0.26

SYNOPSIS ^

    PAR assistant for packaging Wx applications on MSWin and Linux
    
    run 'wxpar' exactly as you would run pp.
        
    e.g.  wxpar --gui --icon=myicon.ico -o myprog.exe myscript.pl

    At the start of your script ...
    
    use Wx::Perl::Packager;
    use Wx;
    .....
    
    or if you use threads with your application
    
    use threads;
    use threads::shared;
    use Wx::Perl::Packager;
    use Wx
    
    Wx::Perl::Packager must be loaded before any part of Wx so should appear at the
    top of your main script. If you load any part of Wx in a BEGIN block, then you
    must load Wx::Perl::Packager before it in your first BEGIN block. This may cause
    you problems if you use threads within your Wx application. The threads
    documentation advises against loading threads in a BEGIN block - so don't do it.
    
    wxpar will accept a single named argument that allows you to define how the
    wxWidgets libraries are named on GTK.
    wxpar ordinarily packages the libraries as wxbase28u_somename.so.0
    This will always work if using Wx::Perl::Packager.
    However, it maybe that you don't want to use Wx::Perl::Packager, in which case
    you need the correct extension. For most installations the default '.0' IS the
    correct extension - so in most cases you need do nothing.
    
    If, however, you receive errors that suggest, for example, that
    wxbase28u_somename.so.5 could not be found, you want librararies packaged as
    wxbase28u_somename.so.5 so pass two arguments to wxpar as
    
    wxpar wxextension .5
    
    If you want wxbase28u_somename.so.0.6.0 , for example
    
    wxpar wxextension .0.6.0
    
    which would mean a full line something like
    
    wxpar wxextension .0.6.0 -o myprog.exe myscript.pl
    
    NOTE: the arguments must be FIRST and WILL BREAK Wx::Perl::Packager (which should
    not be needed in this case as all libraries should be on your LD_LIBRARY_PATH and
    named so that your par binary finds them).
    
    OF COURSE - the symlinks must actually exist. :-) - That is, if you pass
    
    wxpar wxextension .0.6.0 -o myprog.exe myscript.pl
    
    then wxbase28u_somename.so.0.6.0 etc. must be real files or symlinks on your
    system.
