in reply to Production obfuscation

I'm not too concerened about the users attempting a reverse enginner. I'm practicing sercurtry thru obsecurity.

Sorry? This is supposed to be irony, isn't it?

Security through obscurity basically means you don't have any security. Anyone who is well versed enough in Perl to do serious reverse engineering would have no problem at all of either writing a "decoder" or just plug the script into a debugger and see whats happening instruction by instruction.

    "Anyone who is well versed enough in Perl to do serious reverse engineering would have no problem at all..."

    Or for those who aren't familiar with perl a google search would provide techniques/code to do it for them.
