Hi

I can protect maxscript if I want. I can save ".ms." file as a ".mse". This file ".mse" only reading cannot editing or opening.

Is this possible in Mel scripting ? Do you know similar thing ?

Thanks

AFAIK, MEL scripts remain in pure text. I guess you can protect them from editing by setting it to a read only file. Of course, I may be wrong, and there is a way to do waht you want...

Personally I prefer to have the script at least readable, so I know what it will do before I run it.

If you want to hide all the code, you'll have to compile plugins.

definitely! Why would you want to hide the workings of your scripts?

That's the beauty of MEL, it is accesable for everyone, and it realy helps the comminity.

But yes, if you wan't to sell your scripts, you should write a plugin.

Yes. I agrre.

I will public my character animation custom window like other artists. But it is not completed yet.

However I want to protect my some mel scripts because I write character anim. tools for a company. If they see my codes and edit it, my job will fly away. :scream: I don't want that.

They haven't td or something like that job. I support this company about mel. They pay some money for my codes.
