in reply to Principles of obfuscation?

See Trying to learn something about obfuscation for some interesting links.

Then, before rushing to create your obfuscation masterpiece, try to understand some of the works from other people.

Camel Code has a fine spoiler that you can use as your first lesson, but if it looks too hard, you may start with this step-by-step deconstruction of one of my nightmarish compositions, or a more demanding twist.

As for the editor, I use Vim, but for obfuscated scripts, as you can see from my notes, the best editor is Perl itself, since I use it to create garbled code from clean lines.

My motivation to do obfu stuff is to challenge myself doing something harder than usual. A side effect of my obfu works is that I became more confident about some less than ordinary pieces of Perl syntax.

Have fun!

JaVE does camilize & ASCII Art

    JaVE does camilizes with any text and any image that you provide.

    And there is also a similar aproach as a PM: Text::JavE. So you should only have to think in the perl code part.
