295Crypto -- again
- Aug 20, 2000I've been running the 3/22/00 release, in the hopes that perhaps the crypto
functionality has been made easier to use... but it doesn't seem to be.
There's still no way at all to open an encrypted file from the shell prompt
without having it come up scrambled. I did find the 'find-cfile' command
to open such a file once in the program, so that is helpful. (Just so you
know, what I usually do is set up icons to open various files, including
some that are encrypted. With pre-Jasspa versions, one could use a '-k'
flag on the commandline to specify an encryption key... this is not totally
safe, esp. on Unix machines.)
A nice behavior would be to detect an encrypted file (given on the
commandline) upon load, and prompt the user for a key, and then open the
file. It would be OK if this were done via file extension (e.g., '.txc').
I have been doing some experimenting in my .emf files but haven't gotten
this to work yet.
