Besides, how could the Enigma encrypt

Code: Select all

CHR$(200)
? It doesn't work when you have the whole 256-character ASCII alphabet.

Depends on what you define as effective. I mean it gets the job done, and if your entire goal is protect some.. less than sensitive data, then sure, it's effective. As a simple and somewhat not accurate example, say you got the string: 11111111111111111111111111 And you encrypt it with the password...

So, the following wouldn't be an effective encryption method? SUB PatzCrypt (InFile$, OutFile$, Password$) FirstHandle = FREEFILE OPEN InFile$ FOR BINARY ACCESS READ AS #First Handle SecondHandle = FREEFILE OPEN OutFile$ FOR BINARY ACCESS WRITE AS #SecondHandle DO Crypt$ = INPUT$(4096, #FirstHandle)...

Encryption and XOR

How come in all of the encryption programs I see written in QuickBASIC, none of them include XOR? It seems like an easy and effective way to encrypt a file. Example: (pseudo-code) Code% = 145 'Just an example. DIM GetVar AS STRING * 1 OPEN FILE1$ FOR BINARY ACCESS READ AS #1 OPEN FILE2$ FOR BINARY A...

Re: HELP! calculating student's average

WHILE 90 < average <= 100 This is really strange syntax to me, and I've been programming Basic for over 30 years. I compiled your code and got no error, but I don't understand what this statement means. Hmm... It doesn't seem like this would work. Usually comparisons like this will require an AND s...

Hans Reiser arrested.

Hans Reiser, who made the ReiserFS, was arrested for circumstantial evidence against killing his wife. What really gets me is the fact that SUSE is moving away from the ReiserFS because of this.

Maybe you wana use FOR NEXT structure there.
