The original program is provided intact in that variable unless bleach is used. Intact is not obfuscated.

This is, for the third time, FALSE. Please feel free to read the code or even the docs.

This is getting silly. perlc does not, by any means, claim to lock up your code safe and sound. As we all know, this is essentially impossible. This is even explained in the docs for perlc. If you can find any false claims that I make for perlc, I'd love to hear about them. The home page actually explains that there are many ways to get to the source, and then states:

Regardless, it IS possible to wrap your perl script into a C program that evals the script in a perl interpretor, and maybe even obfuscate the script a bit while we're at it

It's a simple script. And it does some simple obfuscation (BESIDES BLEACH). I get that it's not the end solution to hiding your code. In *NO WAY* does it claim to be, at all. But I have hade many people send me thanks for the fact that it exists, so they don't have to write it.

I get that you don't want it and that you, and I, and anyone who reads the docs can see that it's not foolproof or completely secure.
