Yes, but he won't tell for fear of getting ripped off of his knowledge.

Who won't tell? Why would I send you the py code, for example, if I 
wanted to protect it because of its importance? I'd put it in exe form 
and send it and allow you to input data to produce the desired result of 
the program.
