OptiPerl uses a folder to store its settings and cached files. The application data folder has 3 sub-folders:


  • Sessions: Saves a cached copy of remote files. The files are saved in sub folders named after the session of the remote transfer.
  • Debug: Saves cached copies of scripts that are Remotely debugged. The scripts are saved in folders named after the IP of the remote machine, for example Remote\\test.pl
  • Settings: Stores files with the settings of OptiPerl.


The application data folder is usually at:


Windows 98/Me: C:\windows\All Users\Application Data\OptiPerl\

Windows NT: c:\WinNT\Profiles\{Active User}\Application Data\OptiPerl\

Windows 2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\{Active User}\Application Data\OptiPerl\


For security reasons, we recommend setting the Encrypted properly of the folder in Windows 2000 and XP.
