Hi Webmasters, a client had a problem with his internet connection, it went dead for a whole day and intermittent for many hours after that. A lot of online services went down in that incident.
The client wants everything he can get inside his local server, in fact that's a very good idea as no storm will cut his connection from his pc to the server (right in the next room). The thing is how do I protect the apps I wrote for that client?
Having my apps on my server helps me to keep my apps safe, away from any tech copying the source code or modifying it. I can install the app on his server and make it work as on the internal network, of course that involves explaining the client that a lot of bad things might happen there... with no responsibility on my side, but what worries me is others copying my apps.
is there a way to avoid others looking into my perl source code? some sort of compiler? then I can get the scripts to run only on one machine and if copied, refuse to run.
Thanks in advance
