in thread Is there a way with IPC::Run to hide command options from process table?

IIRC, you are still able to get that information by inspecting the information associated with the process table entry. This will only give a false sense of security.

That being said, it is sometimes helpful to set what shows in the process table (with default ps options) to something that actually means something to the viewer, such as what Sendmail does (sendmail: accepting connections on port....)
