( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

What would stop the user from bypassing the authentication by simply not using your Perl interface at all, accessing the files directly with some other software? I'm assuming you have something in mind for this, but I don't know what it is. Are the files encrypted? Owned by root and chmod ugo-rwx? Not stored at all except in process memory? Your Perl interface will need to take this stuff into account and might need to be completely different depending on the answer. One person who already replied is assuming that the data are on a remote server. That would lead to a completely different Perl interface than most of the other cases. We can't really advise you very well on how to do what you want without knowing more about what exactly it is that you want to do.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
