Response to: Obfuscators can compact/ improve code

Just as a quick note for our readers: be careful here because some compilers remove 'dead code' when it's detected during the optimization phase (code that never actually gets executed). Be sure to check the compiler flags and make sure you don't unintentionally remove 'dead code' that you didn't mean to remove, especially when dealing with compiled languages and mature compilers like GCC.
