outcast has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Does anyone have any idea if there are any modules for perl that will allow you to generate, and encrypt text using RSA keys? I have had no luck with search engines, CPAN, or irc so I am asking you guy, or have fun a new open source project?

    Supersearch is your friend! This is pretty cool (see the bottom of this page for a pure Perl version), and was noted in this thread here.

    I'd like to be able to assign to an luser

    Check out Vipul Ved Prakash's code (which is on the back of the Dolphin shirt from Thinkgeek that I am wearing right now) here. It uses dc, a reverse polish notation calculator, to fulfill it's duties.

      Not only that, it also uses GP/Pari, a great calculator built specifically for number theory. This baby is great for generating primes.

      Man, I love that shirt. I wear it in Physical Education and all the non-geeks (read: non-cool people) point at me in confusion and wonder what the gibberish on my back is all about. I just scoff them when they ask.


      i totally forgot about that i have that shirt too. I just have not worn it in a while. i need to be smacked
