Locking easylanguage code

Postby Jack Zolty » 28 Nov 2007

I would like to send a college some easylanguage code that I have written....
How do I go about locking the code so that he can't change or view it before I send it to him...?

Jack,

protecting the code with a password or exporting as Read-Only from PL Editor will prevent that someone can view or change the code.
The first gives you the possibility to take a look at the code in case you are aware of the password where the latter doesn't give you a way to view the code.

Best regards,

The password method is not secure.

A friend sent me his password protected indicator. I tried to compile it... it encountered an error, then the code sprang open in the PowerEditor.

LOL

Hi Jack,

If you export your code from PLEditor as a read-only .sef file, whoever it is meant for will not be able to view or change it. .sef file leaves no source available for viewing for it is compiled as a binary code. This would be the safest way to go.

Regards.
