compiled rexx without source readable

Postby alain_pary » Sun Oct 21, 2012 8:54 pm

Hello,
as we compile our rexx code , we get an executable module , but the rexx code is readable with some little modification .
is it possible to avoid this ? compile option ? other ?

regards

Hello,

Why does someone believe the code should not be readable?

Is there is a business requirement to do this or is this just personal preference?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

If the OP is developing commercial software, it would be rather unwise to distribute the source...

Hello,

Or easily reverse-engineered "executables". . .

I find a good ibm presentation from 2007, with some compile options to resolve my problem
