in thread best way to store login information for a perl script?
I disagree. It's an improvement. The executable could be installed in /usr/local/bin or someplace or be a module in a public lib. The only more secure answer is taking a passkey or something against some encryption keys and you have to do that under either SSL or with echo off in the terminal and the whole point of a tool like this is to make it easier, not to make it a functionally identical interface the web UI.
