PAD (Portable Application Description) is a standard of passing program information that make easier the registration of programs for the authors, but it also should enable the archive administrators to update the programs automatically.
In order to use the advantages of PAD, you must produce a PAD file (.xml) for each of your programs. For producing your PAD files in a simple way, you may use this free tool for best results: PADGen. Then, you can register your programs only with the information of the URL of the PAD file and the wished category in the archive.
By using the PAD files, you save time by having to create a description of your software packages only once. This description can then be uploaded quickly to all sites that support PAD submission. Webmasters can process these PAD files and extract the data appropriate for their site. They can keep the contents of their site current by polling PAD files on the web sites of the authors of the software they list.
