Hi Karl

I will use your examples and maybe it will become clearer to me what you try to explain. And how to use this info in my solutions.

I've changed the extension of one file from .exe -> .zip and you are 100% right. I'm completely shocked! Besides the advantage of not to create a Perl environment on systems I don't see the benefit of using pp (PAR::Packer). Is there a way to prevent this and use a module that doesn't make retrieving the source code that easy!!! And produce real machine code.

    As I previously suggested, read and understand the documentation, this is all explained there. If you don't understand the benifit of pp, why are you using it?

      One year ago I read everything I needed to know about PAR::Packer, if I would have read about the possibility to unzip the executables, I would never have used it. I can remember reading people using it to protect their sources. Well in a way it does, but just a very little. Very strange to create a zip file takes 45 minutes for just a few hundred lines of code......

      That being said, it brought me a step closer to what I wanted, and I'm grateful for that. That's life sometimes you take a wrong turn, to find later on you need to go back.

      So I will start my search on a real compiling solution, if there is any

      Any suggestions for a good wiki on to compile .pl files to .exe, on Windows which are real compilers, not packers

        "One year ago I read everything I needed to know about PAR::Packer, if I would have read about the possibility to unzip the executables, I would never have used it."

        Apparently you didn't read everything you needed to know about PAR::Packer.

        "I can remember reading people using it to protect their sources."

        Impossible, they were mistaken and you took their word for it over the clearly documented advice.

        "Any suggestions for a good wiki on to compile .pl files to .exe, on Windows which are real compilers, not packers."

        If you're looking for a reliable, production worthy solution you're out of luck.

        Update: there are several interested threads here on hiding the source, decompiling and reverse engineering, some of which cover Perl as well as other languages. Super Search is your friend.
