    Hey, welcome back! I remember when you tried to pass off an obfuscator as a good idea, waved some legal threats at me and were generally a jerk.

    Go away.

    Here is a commercial obfuscator has the history and it spawned B::Deobfuscate which is a free tool for undoing the work of Stunnix-like programs. I tried subclassing B::Deparse so I could also release a B::Obfuscate but that wasn't possible to do without having to copy and paste massive portions of B/Deparse.pm which is just a yucky proposition from a maintenance standpoint.

      Don't forget his attempt to get OpenOffice to pay him for patches :-)

    SPWS is available using two licensing models - for single applications (with no more than 2 commercial editions and any number of trial or demo editions) for $129 and for unlimited number of applications for $649. All terms are listed on the Pricing page.
    You're using a free perl discussion area to promote a commercial piece of software? How do you sleep at night, spammer?

    Yawn. I whipped up something similar four years ago. Can yours render in Gtk or Tk as well, if they are available?

    I didn't bother releasing it, I thought it was such an easy hack. Maybe I should now.

      I've got a server-in-a-page that I modified from a comp.lang.perl.misc posting from 3 years ago. I was even playing with it to deploy where I work and replace a bunch of VB apps. *shrugs*

      I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

        I always thought that this would be a good way of writing apps, but after I wrote mine I realised... nah. It's a bit too clunky. It needs a strong widget command language. Some of this promised .NET stuff looks interesting.

      No, it won't render in Tk or GTK if they are available. It's just a web server with wrapper. SPWS is not "easy hack" though - the source code is 90kb unobfuscated.

        The size of your codebase as measured by disk used does not imply complexity. I once had a co-worker core dump perl because rather than use a hash, she had generated a 15,000 line if..elsif..elsif... structure. Her program was about half a meg, but was super-simple in terms of logic.

        Mine's only 44kb, so I guess I missed a few widgets - or maybe I don't comment enough. I found alot of it was boring 'cross the eyes' work, I guess that's why I stopped.

        For me the word 'easy' has connotations of 'straightforwards'. There wasn't much tricky or innovative in my code.

        Still, I think most of what is offered here is easily reachable by the average Perl programmer using HTTP::Daemon and a bit of fingerwork.
