Thanks for your reply. So you're saying it's not doable, right?

Not sure why you think the same even for C where all the user gets is the binary and there's no chance of him changing the code!

    Not doable on a technical level, no. Unless you're willing to go the software-as-a-service route.

    What makes you think that it's impossible to change binaries? Disassemblers, debuggers and other tools exist.

    There's a whole industry around DRM, digital rights/restriction management, and basically all the protections against copying have been cracked. And they all come in binary files, one way or another.

      You're right. I was just thinking in terms of simple readability of the source code.

      Thanks.
