Most Secure Language

I've been looking into other languages and was wondering which one is the best for locking down and protecting your source code.

Is it even possible to encrypt/lock your source code in any language?

I don't want to learn a language, invest years of time developing something, then have someone immediately copy my source and sell a derivative before I can turn a profit on it.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no way to accomplish this at the language level.

Best lockdown method is to package your actual code as an API service. This way your logic is locked down tight.

don't package the source with the binaries and use a code obfuscator on the binaries.
