bagelesque has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Now is there is obviously a technique per se to obfuscating PERL but it is all just pertaining to knowing the language really well or is it more about using substition/explode and such forth? Is there any all around useful documentation concerning PERL obfuscation? Will I never stop asking these silly questions? :) I beseech thee for thy help. :)

    I don't know if there really is much of a handbook for obfu... Since the whole point is to confuse the reader, trying to pick apart well-done obfu is a bad place to start. I'd recommend playing a few rounds of golf, since golf and obfu are highly related pasttimes.... Care to play a round?
