in reply to Protect source code

This node, Why is it bad to hide the source?, goes inte quite alot of detail as to why it may not be a great idea .

If you are trying to hide the code from others on the same machine (ie cgi) then it is harder. You could try to set the permissions such that the code is still visible to those who need it, and not to those who don't.

The problem with obfuscating it is that once you have de-obfuscated one of your scripts then it is trivial to do it to other scripts obfuscated in the same way.

Not an answer to your question though...

--tidiness is the memory loss of environmental mnemonics
