in reply to Protecting perl source code

I wonder how many copies of the source walked out the door with those laptops he sold to y'all. ;-)

This sounds to me like he's paying you to chase your tail for six hours. The best way to "protect" the code is to get a lawyer to make sure that all the copyright details are taken care of for the code so that it will be on record as an asset to the company.

If this was a priority for the manager, he made a real bonehead move in having the application written in Perl in the first place. Still, Microsoft and Sun haven't had much luck either "protecting" their code from poor security and disgruntled employees.

    Exactly 0 copies. After my experience there, the last thing I wanted was to be dealing with him in the future about software theft. These 6.5 hours are even annoying, as I had high hopes of never having to respond to an email of his.

    The initial idea was for the system to be either an appliance or an ASP. In either case, we controlled access. I guess for his next company he's planning something else.

    I can chase my tail for 6.5 hours very easily. Once that is done, I am done with him. Fini!
