Many thanks for the clarification! It's much appreciated.

We certainly have a no-decompile/r.e. clause in our contracts. And we trust our clients. But we don't trust some of their other vendors who are competitors in some areas and at times have access to the server. PerlApp makes it that much harder. I don't think it's paranoia.

Another reason for delivering an EXE is so the clients don't have to acquire and install Perl. In our market many many servers are run by people who wouldn't know how to do this or wouldn't want to.

Also it's easier for the clients if we deliver a single EXE than make sure each client is up to date on the 20 scripts that comprise the app.

So there are good arguments for almost anything!

Thanks again. Stephen

    Yeah, gotta love the power of pp for that. One exe, no husle, no install required! I love that!
