in thread Same is different?
I think this mostly means I am a stupid wheening
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... :-)
