Is there anyway to hide the content of do file or ado file?

I want to send the stata code to the client, he can run it and see the output, but I dont want to see him the algorithms in it etc.

You're only option if you're working in Stata is to implement your routine (or at least the sensitive portions of it) in Mata; you can then distribute just the byte-compiled version without the source. While one could always attempt to decompile the byte-code, this would take serious work and almost certainly would be out of reach of your "client".
