AutoIt Project Suggestion, Source Code Parser

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

Due to the technical properties of AutoIt and the way the compiled executable binaries operate, it is relatively easy to recover a script from a compiled binary which makes distribution of closed-source applications, and it is hard to make those closed-source applications, stay closed source.

We decided to rely on Obfuscation as a solution to such problem, and it would be relatively easier to develop obfuscation and properly parse and process AutoIt source code if the official AutoIt Project would be to release the source code parser, such as the componements that had to be made in order to make syntax checks in Au3Check.exe Tool.

 

I would like to ask if this is a possibillity of open-sourcing the AutoIt source code parser and maintain the release with the new versions of AutoIt scripts.

 

Thank you

@JLogan3o13 If I want my application to stay safe, should I just make it in another language?

Is that the advice I must take from you?

No, the advice is that no language is 100% safe; AutoIt even less than others. This topic has been discussed ad nauseam on this forum; nothing is going to keep a determined person from decompiling AutoIt code. And AutoIt is no longer an open source language; Jon has no interest in going back down that path, as he has stated.

I understand that no language is safe, but if you could at least go and help us making it more safe, and provide the source code for the parser, this isnt like open-sourcing the whole project, just the source code parser.

Not sure what part of "it isn't going to happen" you're not understanding. But let's stop this particular oozlum bird before it goes any further.
