( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am currently using PAR to create an executable that I can deliver to users who don't have perl installed on their machines. The exe has to connect to a database and must contain a password so I thought it would be a good idea to filter the code rather than keep it in plain view. Below is the command I am using to get PAR to filter the code.

pp -f Bleach -o out.exe out.pl

Because the executable is a self extracting zip archive I can open up the contents and take a look with a package like winzip.

To my surprise

There are two versions of the original perl script within the archive. The first is located at
 script/
and is filtered. The other copy is located at
 lib/
and is in plain text.

Does anyone know how to get both copies to filter?

In reply to PAR only filters one of two copies of the script to be placed in the executable by atopolc

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
