I think this mostly means I am a stupid wheening moron... :-S

In my obfuscated code, I assumed that the same version of CGI.pm would be identical (except for line-endings) on every platform Perl runs on. This is false. But the differences are in fact very tiny (a few lines), and mostly regard configuration parameters, which actually and naturally change between platforms and installs.

I think the Perl core (and CGI is part of the standard distribution) is you best bet at portable code. This doesn't include Obfuscation, that's all... :-)

[Lady_Aleena]: Having to rewrite some parts of my site for mobile devices is such a pain in the butt.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: what editor are you using, on what platform?
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, geany on Debian jessie.
[shmem]: some experience with vim?
[Lady_Aleena]: None
[shmem]: I don't know geany, and don't know whether it has support for ctags.
[Lady_Aleena]: ctags?
[shmem]: ctags is a program which (recursively) extracts the symbols from source and stores them in a one-file database. This allows you to query the locations where these symbols (e.g. a subroutine name) are used anywhere in the source code tree...
