in reply to Encryption, Decryption & Password Protection

GnuPG can be used to encrypt files. Is there a particular reason you want to use Perl for this?

More generally, I get the impression that you don't have a lot of experience with encryption (not an insult, just a statement of fact). That is a very good sign that you should be using premade solutions, not trying to come up with your own.

    Thank you for your response. I haven't done any encryption till now so you are right in assessing the situation. No offense taken. I am okay with pre-made solutions and will look at GnuPG But learning about how it's done and how things work underneath the hood was the minor goal of this effort.
