Hi, it would be nice to include an encrypt support into the bcompiler. One of the possible way is to implement mcrypt as already Matjaz Marcina did on

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
encrypted bytecode

Actual result:
no encryption support so far

Patches welcome

It should probably do something like

crypt key can be used at the compile stage, and decrypt key 
set before running/including

There's a problem with that patch not on implementation but on conceptual level - the idea behind the patch requires a secret key to be hardcoded to the extension. So you will be able to use the encoded files only with one particular instance of bcompiler, i.e. they aren't portable.

The whole idea behind bcompiler is to provide a tool for distributing PHP applications without revealing their sources, so portability is essential.
