Drag-and-drop encrypting files in a pen drive

How to use: drag and drop files into the executable icon. You will be asked for a password. The program will then create encrypted files with the ".gpg" extension (it will not delete the original files for you).

If you drop files with the ".gpg" extension, the files will be un-encrypted back.

Installation: use "PAR" (or Perl2EXE/PerlApp) to make an executable file, and copy it to the pen drive. You will need to copy the "gpg" executable to the same directory.

I've tested it with perlapp, in Windows XP and NT.

    my $main = MainWindow->new;
    $main->Label(-text => 'Passphrase')->pack;
    my $pass = $main->Entry(-width => 12,
                            -show => '*');
    $main->Button(-text => 'Go',
                  -command => sub {
                           do_encrypt($pass, $gpg, @ARGV);

    $main->Button(-text => 'Cancel',
                  -command => [$main => 'destroy']

sub do_encrypt {
    my ($pass, $gpg, @files) = @_;
    my @cmd;
    for ( @files )
        if ( $_ =~ /(.*)\.gpg$/i )
            @cmd = ($gpg,
                '--passphrase-fd 0',
                '-o', '"' . $1 . '"',
                '--batch', '--no-tty',
                '"' . $_ . '"',
            @cmd = ($gpg,
                '--passphrase-fd 0',
                '-o', '"' . $_ . '.gpg"',
                '--batch', '--no-tty',
                '"' . $_ . '"',
        open( FILE, '|-', "@cmd" );
        print FILE $pass->get, "\n";
        close( FILE );

[Discipulus]: what i want is to compute them
[oiskuu]: You want to draw the path? $iter = combinations( $TOP_HEIGHT .. $NODE_HEIGHT, $pos); then get the path from the iter, level change at depth x, for(..) $pos += $level_change; something like that
[oiskuu]: yergh, <code> tags... [$top_height .. $node_height]
[Eily]: Discipulus by demonstrate I suppose you mean simulate with perl?
[Eily]: the demonstration itself is fairly easy. The number of paths on a node is the sum of the numbers of paths to the two nodes above (or one node above on the edges of the triangle)
