I'm speaking with developers that use Flash Player VM from many
years and compile every day plain text AS files with MTASC but everyone
doesn't understand my point of veiw ... it's a nonsense for me.
However, first point was posted by Nicolas and I don't care about
byte-encoded security because it's not my goal ... often uncompiled code
should be reversed such AS, as JS, should be reversed too.
JS workarounds exists for your right reasons, but an official VM should
resolve API problems as is for every VM I know because usually is the VM
that has to convert encoded code in a compatible cross platform/browser
way or Java couldn't work in Windows as in Linux and Flash Player
couldn't work in Mac as in Windows or in FireFox as in IE ... then if
the official VM has its API, compatible workarounds should be done by
itsself if necessary, not by developers ... ( and theese are the basic
advanced of a VM that every developer knows, you too )
At the end, a compiled code should has less debug than an uncompiled
code ... MTASC has a lot of settings while compile and you use theese
every day (strict or others) ... really it's so unnecessary ? ... then
why do you use MTASC ? ... leave the source on server and compile in
time your code ... it's the same for you, isn't it ?
PHP, that's not visible from users, need a compiler since it was born,
APC and other are just "cachers", someone has a private byte-encoder ...
Becase byte-encoded is smallest, faster, etc etc ...
Well, I've not more things to tell you, bye bye.
