Description: This program reads all *.pl files in a given directory and then outputs the script followed by the results to an html file. Any suggestions for improvements, or added robustness would be much appreciated.
foreach my $file(@files){
    my ($filestart)=$file=~/(.*?)\./;
    open INPUT, $file;
    my $source;
    while (<INPUT>){
    close INPUT;
    open FILE, ">$filestart.html";
    print "<HTML><BODY bgcolor=ffffff>\n";
    print "<PRE><CODE>";
    print $source;
    print "</CODE"."></PRE>";
    print "<B>Program results:</B>";
    print "<PRE>";
    eval $program;
    print "</PRE>";
    print "</BODY></HTML>";
    close FILE;

    If you insist on filtering the source yourself, rather than using routines in, you'll need to add:     $source=~s/&/&amp;/g;

    Since you are going to stuff the whole file into a scalar anyway, let Perl do that for you:
    my $source; { open INPUT, $file; local $/ = undef; $source = <INPUT>; close INPUT; }
    You caught the need to escape the tag characters in the code, but there are some cases that will slip through. CGI's escapeHTML function can filter the whole file at once; I'm sure there are other implementations too.

[Marshall]: stevieb wish you well with water problems, my water was off all day Monday for repairs. Any more progress on .exe info problem?.
[stevieb]: Marshall: no. I commented on the thread yesterday. Visual Studio updates the tags ok, but corrupts the exe
[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
[Marshall]: I also looked into PerlApp from Active State, but they don't sell their Dev Kit independent of a very expensive ($1,200) per year license anymore.
[Corion]: I would assume that the PE format hasn't changed that much since the days of yore, but it seems that I would be wrong in that assumption
[Marshall]: When I bought my copy 15+ years ago, it was just a couple hundred bucks.
