No, I mean that if your script is sending any output to a user at all (html, text, whatever), that user can scrape it.

I was thinking their might be a way to password protect the directory and use a curl function to forward a password to the directory with the data being viewed. That way the directory cannot be viewed and the curl function being php will not be veiwed either.
