You can use -mata- code and put it in a -mata- library, see

*************
help mata_mlib
*************

and http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2005-07/msg00151.html


Apart from that, as you do not have access to the executable to create
built-in commands, your code will be as open to inspection as the official
Stata code.

Hi,

I want to ask a related question. In Excel for example, you could write a
VBA routine and then password protect it so that people cannot see the
actual program. Is there some way to password protect your stata ado/do
files so that the actual code cannot be viewed?

Thanks

A related strategy that you could consider is discussed here:

Hope this helps,
