The short answer: Don't do that.

The long answer: If you must, you can use the -F (big F) option to pp.
See perldoc pp.

Trying to hide your source code is not really reliable. If anything, you
should use PAR::Filter::Crypto, but that's hard to set up -- and it is
for a reason. (See docs of Filter::Crypto for a discussion.)
