Please feel free to read the code or even the docs.
Not only did I read the docs (doesn't mentioned anything on this) and the code (where I got that info), I ran the code. block contains the entire original source code, intact, not obfuscated.
If you can find any false claims that I make for perlc, I'd love to hear about them.
Like I've said many times, it doesn't obfuscate. It happily provides the entire original source code intact (after unbleach.pl if bleach is used). Aside from that, there's at least the following I didn't mention before:
- It doesn't convert Perl to C.
- Finally, there's an implicit claim that an executable can be made from the generated .c file, but it's not obvious how to do that.
