Is there any way to hide the definition of a function in Mma so that
it is not visible when using the ?? help command?

Setting the attribute ReadProtected would work, but 
then ?? will not show the options of the function any more.

So is there no way to create your own functions to work like build in
ones (where ?? gives you the usage and options, but no definition)?

Thanks !
