Package: par2
Version: 0.4-9
Severity: important

My pars are in directory A while my file to check is in directory B

when I do

par2 -r A/PAR

it looks for the file in directory A although the file to be checked is in the current directory

if I do


it still tries to check the file in A (reports it is missing) then goes
on to check the B/FILETOCHECK file does that perfectly and then reports it cannot move A/FILESTOCHECK to B/FILESTOCHECK

I would like to see the first option work (if local file exists, do it)
