in reply to Perl 'executable'

One thing you can do is split your script into two parts — a client for which you give away the source code and a server which you keep adequately secure (you get to define "adequate") on a machine under your control.

Assuming that server does something sufficiently valuable and sufficiently complex that your users find it easier and/or cheaper to use it than to circumvent your security mechanisms to read and/or hack your script, then you have achieved your stated goal.
