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

Hi Monks

I want to use Acme::Bleach for encrypting multiple files in an application. But i am not being able to achieve it. For eg: if calls, and i invoke Acme::Bleach at the beginning of, then gets whitened but no effect takes place on Again if I run and then run, both get whitened, and the desired output is not generated. Is there a way in which i can whiten without whitening and still get the desired output.

    • If you really mean "encrypting" Acme::Bleach isn't a useful too. It's a joke module.
    • if you're trying to prevent a user from reading your code, the best you can do is make it more difficult.
    • If you actually encrypt a script, the user can't execute it without decrypting... which obviates any utility for the encryption.

    Addition of Bleach at the hardware level should have your software automagically oxidized & whitened. Have you tried that?
