cobfusc — make a C source file unreadable but compilable
cobfusc [-AabdemntxV] [-c case] [-f suffix] [-g file] [-i idobf] [-o file] [-p prefix] [-r file] [-s seed] [-u file] [-w cols] [-z file] [file ...]
This document contains only a brief description of cobfusc. For a more complete documentation, please read the Info file or the Texinfo manual. The cobfusc utility converts the input file, written in the C language, into a human unreadable one, but compilable. The main work is converting every identifier into a meaningless one, removing any comment and compacting all the white-spaces when they are not required. The options are as follows: -A Enable a heavy obfuscation for the source file. This is equivalent to the -ademt -i numeric options. The digraphize option is not enabled by default since the Amendement 1 (1994) changes to ANSI X3.159-1989 (“ANSI C89”) are supported only by few C compilers. -a Garble every string with octal escapes. -b Enable the digraphize mode. -c no | lower | upper | screw | random Set the identifier case obfuscation mode. -d Compact the macros removing backslashes and white-spaces when they are not required. -e Compact the white-spaces when they are not required. -f suffix Put the output of each processed file in a separate file with suffix appended to file name instead of standard output. This is useful when processing a package with a lot of source files. -g file Add first the identifiers contained in file to the obfuscation table. Useful when those identifiers are shared between two or more source files. -i no | numeric | word | random Set the identifier obfuscation mode. -m Strip the comments. -n Garble integers with expressions. -o file Set the output destination to file. -p prefix Specify the prefix to use when generating the identifiers. -r file Tell cobfusc that the identifiers contained in file must not be obfuscated. -s seed Specify the seed for generating the random numbers. -t Enable the trigraphize mode. -u Dump the symbol table to file. -V Print version information on standard output then exit. -w Set the width limit of the output. -x Exclusive mode; obfuscate only the identifiers specified by the -g and -z parameters. -z file Add the identifiers pairs contained in file to the obfuscation table.
