Discussion on: How to encrypt strings & files in your source code?

First of all, I would like you to know that I am completely respectful to you and your efforts. The idea of turning off the source code of the programs is entirely based on making money, and it is an idea that all of us must oppose fundamentally. Open source code does not mean free. Different types of licenses were developed for this. My goal is not to start a discussion here, but I think you have chosen the wrong place to promote your program. Encouraging the developers to turn off the source code obviously makes me crazy. Of course I am not a developer, there is no reason to take my words seriously. I am just one who is committed to the idea of open source.

This software has nothing to do with the idea of open source (where did you see that?) or "turning off" source code to anyone. It's just a simple string and files encryption extension.
