RE: Does Luac work ?

Lua obfuscates pretty well

Do you know of any available examples to see? I'm not one to use obfuscation myself, but I find the concept interesting.

YES, it is true...sometimes you have to hide or secure something to avoid problems at special environments

Speaking somewhat idealistically, I don't believe that hiding code is beneficial in any respect other than protecting "intellectual property". Hiding your code only gives you the appearance of security. There is NO security if "special environments" includes a system that does not have proper file permissions and the user logs in as root/administrator. I have no idea what you meant by special, so I can only guess at that. In any case, compiled code is hidden only to those who are not very interested in what's inside.
