Decompilation — Gideros Forum

I know this is not an issue of Gideros, but Lua, the compiler luac compiles text into bytecode and the source code for luac is available for all, so in theory, it is easy to write a decompiler converting the bytecode back into instructions as the names of the variables and functions do remain. So how safe is code from this process? I do recollect Gorkem mentioning encrypting the code and the slight delay/performance lag it may cause, but would that make it any safer?

It will only be a matter of time when users will have lost all the source code and the only thing that would have survived would be the compiled app that will form the basis and case for decompilation.
