in reply to Security, is it to much to ask?

Any algorithim implemented in the PerlApp executable could be reverse-engineered by a competent cracker with a low-level debugger, probably in a matter of hours, because PerlApp must decrypt the cyphertext into plaintext in order to execute it. ActiveState decided to keep it simple, and obscured things from the view of a casual user. It wouldn't make much difference either way, except that in the former case, chinman would have had a much harder time restoring his original source.

[Lady_Aleena]: Hello. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec {} \;); with the error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Lady_Aleena]: ACK! my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
