script compilers...

Post by G. Lo » Tue, 27 Aug 2002 09:27:36



Hi! Has anybody tried any of the available script compilers like
shell-lock (http://www.cactus.com/products/cactus/shell-lock.html), or
CCsh (http://www.comeaucomputing.com/faqs/ccshfaq.html), or any others?

I was wondering what people think of them? How easy a "compiled" script
can be decompiled back to its original bourne shell script?
R they "secure" as binaries (stopping prying eyes)?

Surfing on the web shows old pages where the older version of shell-lock
could be reverted back to its ascii text script...

Any input would be great! =)
Thanks!
