peacemaker1820 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need some enlightment...
Is it possible to embed and executable file such as BASIC in perl program for a purpose of security?
For instance, to connect to a local Database on the server, I would need to provide a user name and a password. However, I do not want to do that because once an intruder gets on the server, he can easily open any perl program that connects to the Database and get access to it. For this reason I would like to include a little compiled executable sort of a routine that will get me the username and password to the Database from this executable file.
