    I would like to know that too, a customer asked for a small program and I would like to lock my program so that he can only use it in the specific machine

    Bumping a thread over 4 years old - congratulations on your new record.

    Now go read the forum rules (or runes perhaps, given the age of this thread).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
