How can I prevent people seeing the source code of a particular web page. I have seen that some web sites have done this and some products are also available.
Isn't there a much easier way to implement this than buying such a product?

I don't believe there is any 100% way of doing this.
The bigger question is why? Are you willing to keep from being indexed?
There is a big downside to doing this.

It would need to also prevent people from downloading the page as HTML, as well as stopping several versions of 'view source' - it might stop a casual visitor, but I cannot envisage a systemt that prevents 'view source' while still allowing 'view page'.
I'd guess that the software does little more than disable menus. Which would slow down a determined viewer by approximately 0.4 seconds!

Thanks for comments!
I just wanted to protect a web page that includes a confidential script on it. I don't want others to download it. It doesn't matter if SEs doesn't index it.
Is there still a way?

Perl/PHP? Yes. Those scripts are hidden from visitors by default already.
