in reply to Encryption algorithms in Perl 5.8?

For completely unbreakable encryption with core Perl, use the binary XOR operator ("^") and a one-time pad. If an OTP is unsuitable for your purposes (and it almost certainly is, because there are few practical cases in which an OTP can be used sensibly and correctly), use one of the Crypt modules, as suggested by others above. Don't be afraid of CPAN modules, they are a part of Perl, even if they are usually not distributed together with the binary.


All dogma is stupid.

[usemodperl]: (is that wrong marto?)
[aitap]: usemodperl: maybe it's you who has changed
[marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
[usemodperl]: no that's not it at all, meant safe for perl people, to not be hounded by weirdos obsessed with things like... whitespace :-)
[choroba]: I'm definitely not obsessed with whitespace, I rate myself among Perl people, and I haven't noticed any hounding
[marto]: "no it's not that"...."weirdos "...
[marto]: List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN so a couple of people suggest that your code looks obfuscated. I'd have to ageree, from the perspective of those who can't follow all of that one liner, it doesn't read well
Veltro is a weirdo, obsessed with whitespace
[marto]: to use the word "obsession" when so few people have said so little about it is grasping at staws
