Haha, demonstrate it! I give you the cake and you reproduce the eggs,
ok? But seriously, no offense intended, 95% of all C++ code is not
worth to be stolen!


Best wishes,

[Someone else pointed out that Java bytecode is a lot higher level and
a lot easier to decompile than machine language, whether from C++ or
any other language. I'd think that C++ would be particularly hard to
decompile because templates and overloading generate really bloated,
messy object code. -John]
