shc - Shell script compiler
-SHC is a generic shell script compiler. It takes a script, which is
-specified on the command line and produces C source code. The generated
-source code is then compiled and linked to produce a stripped binary.

-The compiled binary will still be dependent on the shell specified in
-the first line of the shell code (i.e shebang: #!/bin/sh or such), thus
-shc does not create completely independent binaries.

-shc itself is not a compiler such as cc, it rather encodes and encrypts
-a shell script and generates C source code with the added expiration
-capability. It then uses the system compiler to compile a stripped
-binary which behaves exactly like the original script. Upon execution,
-the compiled binary will decrypt and execute the code with the shells'
--c option.
