Only one that I know of: don't produce any output.

you mean like chmod or .htaccess, I guess I'll have to read up on perl. thanks anyways

No, I mean that if your script is sending any output to a user at all (html, text, whatever), that user can scrape it.

I was thinking their might be a way to password protect the directory and use a curl function to forward a password to the directory with the data being viewed. That way the directory cannot be viewed and the curl function being php will not be veiwed either.

It sounds like you are talking about securing file access - not screen scraping.

I would like to secure file access, can you point me in the right direction? Thanks Dave
