As others have said, you cannot prevent a Perl script from being disclosed to the sysadmins ... nor to anyone else who has read-access to the directory in which the script has been stored.

You can, however, use ordinary directory-access rules on the server to ensure that no web user ever has the ability to “purloin” any source-code from the machine.

Incidentally... you do need to pay close attention to the directory permissions that you establish on your stuff if you've deployed to a shared hosting environment!   You’d be rather amazed (and shocked) by what is available to even a casually-curious fellow subscriber to whatever web-hosting service you happen to be using . . .   :-O

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.
