Dear Sir;
Thank you for your reply.  Oftenly, especially in industrial companies,
codes are becoming very valuable and owner of the company likes to keep
that value as confidential in order to protect the company
competitivness.  Somr times, professionals are leaving companies and
starting new jobs in competitor companies.  Therefore, protecting some
codes are becoming important.

So in our case, we are not trying to stop anybody learning python
language but we are trying to protect what we are doing with python.

I hope my reply is sufficient.

Abaqus is widely used in the automotive, aerospace, and industrial
products industries. The package is very popular with academic and
research institutions ...
These software products, especially Abaqus/CAE, extensively use the
open-source scripting language Python for scripting and customization.

Don't academics and researchers thrive on sharing information?
Also, this forum is geared towards learning Python, and sharing source
code is encouraged in order to obtain help.

Also, "many eyes" can find and fix bugs in your scripts, as well as,
others may find the scripts useful: ie. research can advance more

Is there a particular reason why you don't want others to see your
Abaqus Python scripts?

Just curious.
