       fatpack - Command line frontend for App::FatPacker


         $ fatpack pack >

       A shortcut to do all the work of tracing, collecting packlists, extracting modules in
       fatlib, then concatenating into a packed script - in one shot. If you need more detailed
       controls for additional modules, use the following commands separately (see "RECIPES").

         $ fatpack trace [--to=trace-file|--to-stderr] [--use=MODULE]

       Compiles (as in "perl -c") and writes out a trace file containing every module
       require()d during the compilation.

       The trace file is called 'fatpacker.trace' by default; the --to option overrides this.

       If you pass --to-stderr fatpack writes the trace to STDERR instead.

       You cannot pass both --to and --to-stderr.

       If the --use option specifies a module (or modules, if used multiple times) those modules
       will be additionally included in the trace output.

         $ fatpack packlists-for Module1 Module2 Module3

       Searches your perl's @INC for .packlist files containing the .pm files for the modules
       requested and emits a list of unique packlist files to STDOUT.

       These packlists will, in a pure cpan-installation environment, be all non-core
       distributions required for those modules.

       Unfortunately most vendors strip the .packlist files so if you installed modules via e.g.
       apt-get you may be missing those modules; installing your dependencies into a local::lib
       first is the preferred workaround.

         $ fatpack tree fatlib packlist1 packlist2 packlist3

       Takes a list of packlist files and copies their contents into a tree at the requested

       This tree should be sufficient to 'use lib' to make available all modules provided by the
       distributions whose packlists were specified.

         $ fatpack file

       Recurses into the 'lib' and 'fatlib' directories and bundles all .pm files found into a
       BEGIN block which adds a virtual @INC entry to load these files from the bundled code
       rather than disk.


       Current basic recipe for packing:

         $ fatpack trace
         $ fatpack packlists-for `cat fatpacker.trace` >packlists
         $ fatpack tree `cat packlists`
         $ fatpack file >
