Ok so I have an automated system that I am migrating from one platform to another. Due to some complications in order entry, I need some help changing the code to fit the new platform. Language is C#. The brokerage has offered to have their people do the coding for me, but I want to protect my source code. I know for a fact that they "keep a library" of code they have helped customers with, and fear that they'll swipe my code in the random chance event that it is successful. Is this something to be worried about? If so, is there a way I can protect my code? I'm not concerned about reverse engineering. How else would you proceed? The guy who programmed the code for me is no longer available and I need to get this done ASAP. I'd appreciate if this thread could offer some real solutions, rather then the inevitable unproductive hater comments which this thread is bound to elicit. For the record and in advance, I know that my code stinks, I make no money, no one would ever want to steal it, I'm a piker, and like to fornicate with small animals. Now that that's out of the way.... what would you do if you were in my situation? Thanks in advance.
