Actually, contrary to what everyone says, there is one way to encrypt the entire script, as in making it, from the #!/usr/bin/perl to the very end. It will not hold up well in extensive scripts, or large scripts, but it does work nonetheless.

I'm not sure if they still offer it, but WorldWideScripts.com makes a program called PerlEncoder. You gotta buy it if you wanna use it unlimited.

Though, the sad thing is that in scripts, it's nearly impossible to encrypt every single park of your code, unless you use some sort of strong randomizing method, then eval() it.. Though I don't know if eval would work under alot of code..

My strongest recommendation is just encrypt those things you don't want viewed, or editable, such as your copyright link that's displayed..

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
