Encapped scripts are not cross-platform though, right? And don't our nice tiny little scripts suddenly grow into 400k+ band-width using monsters? What I'd like to be able to do is encrypt a script (or part of one) and have REBOL check for a key when it encounters such a script and only decrypt and run it if the key is the right key for the script. No doubt we can do this with Pro's built-in encryption, but it'd then require those using our scripts to have paid for Pro as well. Would encryption expand a script's size by much? -- Carl Read
