in reply to Recover perl source from PerlApp executable

Replies to Help recovering some source code from activestate perlapp 5.3.0, decompile perlapp 4.1, Decompile PerlApp and PerlApp decompile? may be of help. A common theme is "how can we be sure you are decompiling your own code" so the answers are generally somewhat circumspect.

    Thank you for the links. I found these already and they are helpfull if my PerlApp was 5.3. As to how anyone can be sure that the code is mine, it has embedded in the executable the comment "Author: Ray Cordoni" as well as my Company name. The code is quite worthless to anybody or anything but the project it was designed for - being mostly a complicated merging of directory data from diverse sources. It seems that some answers suggest that Activestate will not help. I will test that theory by submitting a support request to Activestate. Thanks again
