Better yet, perhaps you could store the byte-code, and pass *that* through an embedded interpreter? (Heck, while you're at it, encrypt the byte-code as well!)

This may help in preventing some clever hacker from attaching to the process via a debugger and capturing the program 's contents as it's being passed for the eval.

    Perl does not have bytecode. The non-existent bytecode can't be stored and then retrieved later. If it existed, this bytecode could be deparsed back to perl code.

      Well, what I was referring to was the info in here. Granted, I'm a neophyte in the department of perl internals, but I've head of the -B option being used for that sort of purpose.

        perlcc was an extension and has been removed for perl 5.10. The core of perl has never used bytecode.
