With C++ "constexpr" feature, we can do compile-time obfuscation.
But usually the decryption at runtime is not thread-safe, so lock/synchronization must be used at runtime.

C++ language is the kind of language that will blow your whole leg off anyway, approaching it from compile-time or runtime, it doesn't matter, it will blows your whole leg off just for for fun. it's picky and hard to satisfy its quirky nature.

Based language.

for example?

BTW, you can avoid using C++ features that you are not familiar with.

Yeah, agree! C++ is the most long-lived robust industry standard language used ubiquitous

You could even turn of RTTI and other stuff you don't need in your binary
Very curious what C++30 might look like

I don't have a specific example in mind right now, it's just that c++ is fantastic language but is so broad and overly complex that even its experts talk about this and demand a reform. I mean google decided to make a new language that has seamless bidirectional interoperability with C++ because incrementally improving C++ is extremely difficult, both due to the technical debt itself and challenges with its evolution process. Herb Sutter made CPPfront compiler which offer alternate C++ syntax with the goal is to make C++ 10x safer, simpler, and more toolable. Amazon and Microsoft jumped to Rust ship.

This is pretty much what every company did and still do, they made a subset of c++ and guidelines and discard the rest, Google and adobe are the most well known regard this way.

Sure with each ISO C++ release we see improvements in C++'s safety and ergonomics but still not that much of breaking ground improvement that we see in other languages
