in thread Perl Obsfucate Or Encrypter

The FAQ you listed didn't seem to say anything about that, did I miss it?

Either way, can't you get around that by calling the script via backticks (``) or through a system call? If you call a C program via system or backticks does that reveal the object-code to the calling script too?

    You missed the section that contains this key line: (That doesn't mean that a CGI script's source is readable by people on the web, though, only by people with access to the filesystem)

    But you are missing the point too. The source of a CGI script can only be viewed by people with sufficient access to the file system. They have to have shell or local access to view the source code. (Unless you have hosed your web server configuration!) So there is no point in running a script through another script before sending the output to the browser.

      Of course, makes perfect sense. ~hits self on head~
