Code Obfuscation

I’ve been meaning to explore the idea of rendering computer code unreadable for a while, and finally got around to investigating it last week. I like the idea that, even if you have the source code for a program, you would still have no idea how it works. When writing code for other people’s projects, it could be one way to ensure the code doesn’t get appropriated for another purpose later on. So I found some ways of doing this in SuperCollider.
Of course, like most ideas that occur to me, it already has a long history, and an unpronounceable name – Obfuscated Code.
If you don’t use SC, this article will definitely be too geeky for you, and even if you do, that is still a possibility. Anyway here is my little how-to: Code Obfuscation in SuperCollider.
