Here it comes -- source code included so y'all can make fun of me
(quickly hacked to work under msdos and visual studio 98).
(Yes, it gives a warning when it compiles, about ignoring cmdline options.)
Note: this is for v3.12, not v3.8. But if it doesn't work, perhaps you can hack it to work with that. You'll see, I just added a wrapper to the UE crypto routine.
usage is: uecrypt oldfile newfile
you will be prompted for the key
Just tested to work with ue312win95 and MicroEmacs 4.00.
You will be able to see how lame the encryption is -- last time I looked at it, I thought that if you can tell what the first couple of characters of the file are, you can decrypt the entire thing. I have not gotten around to confirming this.
