Hiding CGI-Perl Code...How?
Posted on 1998-03-19
Sometimes I notice servers screw up on calls to CGI-Perl programs and instead of them launching the perl script, they actually show you the perl code like a text file being viewed in the broweser.
I'd hate for this to happen to my CGI-Perl code and would love to take any measures to prevent this. What options do i have?
I've heard of using FILTER:: to hide your source code, but I really don't know much else than the name. I've also heard of converting the perl source code into byte-code or C and compiling.
Please, any help you can give me on hiding the contents of my perl code would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
