Perhaps you did not uderstand me.
It's just dummy code that gives an idea of what you could do, returning either 1 or 0 is just a boolean expression or calling it as a sub is just to help me explain what i ment to do, this is not a final solution, just an idea on how you could do something like this. How you implement it in your code is up to the programmer.

The thing i ment to do, is showing a way to use dates to see if you've got a valid license, not the implementation itself.

Anyway, using a license code is not an ideal idea anyway (as i said before), it allways can be hacked out. The OP however did ask not to be 100% safe on hidding source, just make it more difficult.

The idea of calling for certin functions to your own server is a bad idea as well, it's not failsafe. It however gives fresh ideas to the OP so he can think of a proper solution to his problem.

[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
