I was just wondering, when you encrypt a PPL program, does it compile into bytecode run by an interpreter like Python or Java, or into native machine code like C or Assembly? I am assuming the former but the latter would be really nice, taking full advantage of the Prime's processing power.

The "Release info" files have only referred to "encryption of source", so I'd guess that only the source code gets encrypted, not the object code which isn't listable anyway.
