    Hi,

    i don't know if it is the right place here, don't hesitate to move my post somewhere more appropriate :)

    I am currently writing a paper about security, firewalls, and before all Leaktests.
    I have the paper in itself, i have annexes (the list of all leaktests) and i was wondering if it worth to add in annexes all available leaktests source code ?

    If i do it add 40 pages to the paper, which is only 50 total without leaktests source code.

    What would you want ? source code included or not o_O

    Personally i thought it was interesting since in source code leaktests author explain more what the leaktest does, what is his idea, and what authors thinks about all of that, but source code are available too on my website... so i don't know... :(

    What is your opinion ?

    I would not.
    Interested parties will find sources anyhow.
    If the comments are useful, just explain them in the text.

    Ok, a friend has suggested to me the same thing, just wanted to know :)

    It's easier in addition to print 50 pages than 90 :eek:

    Code snippets are very useful in amongst the text to highlight certain tricks, but IMHO full source should be left in a ZIP file on a webserver somewhere available for easy download for those who want it, without getting in the way of those who don't :)
