QTIPS - Hiding Symbolic Source Code

Developers wishing to distribute symbolics without the source code may be interested in a tip from Pat McNerthney of Icicle Software who suggests

     i)   Creating the symbolic and saving it
     ii)  Deleting the formula and nulling out the dictionary type field
     iii) Saving the dictionary item.

Apparently DICT.MFS is confused by this and saves the record without recompilation, thus leaving the object code intact without the source code!
