i have a peculiar question. Iam developing a php GTK2 desktop application, and my purpose is to hide the source code from the client, to whom i will handle the desktop application (deploy in his system), once it is completed.
Our motto is to enable the client to run the application, without the need for a browser.
I have heard about tools like ioncube encoder that can encrypt the php source code. I want the same functionality to be achieved with the GTK application.
Others must not be able to see the source code. How can this be achieved ?
