in reply to encryption

Check the Crypt:: namespace on CPAN. Also, as friendly advice, i downvoted you because this question shows no work on your part.

Re(2): Encryption Modules on CPAN

    i downvoted you because this question shows no work on your part.

    A few thoughts:

    • It is presumptuous to assume that everyone knows about CPAN.
    • Even if he did know about CPAN, he could have run into other problems (search was down, etc.) or he was just looking for opinions on the Crypt::* modules, which brings us to our next point.
    • When reading a post, remember english isn't everyone's first language. Just because a post seems poorly worded to you doesn't mean the poster was lazy.
    • I like short, to the point questions. Five paragraphs of irrelevant background information just distracts from the actual question.

    As for the original question: see derby's Getting Started with GnuPG and GPG and The GNU Privacy Handbook.

      • Point taken. i did provide a link.
      • Were the question "How do i use Crypt::Blah", i would have had no problem.
      • I don't care if things are mis-spelled, or in poor grammer ... whatever your first language. I do not downvote for that.
      • I like short, but i also like to know i am not doing someone homework.

      I see alot of people in the CB wondering why they got downvoted for this or that, and i thought it was friendly to let people know, so they don't wonder. <sarcasm> I see i was mistaken ... i will downvote as an Anonymous Coward from here on out. <sarcasm>


      from the frivolous to the serious
        Thanks, I think it was very unfair for you to downvote me. First of all, I am new to Perl. I had a bad experience with cgi.pm and later on decided that cause of the problem. I found cgi.pm may have a problem parsing "~" in web address field. After that i am bit careful about using any *.pm Encryption/Decryption is a tiny part of code that I am working on. I really did not want to write alot. I realized it would be useful to obtain someone's small, not so serious encryption/decryption code. If you have looked at anyother posts of mine, you would realize that I did indeed go on to explain in details. Anyhow, thanks for your help!
