just a suggestion..i don't want it..but i think that's best encryption?
When I saw this I assumed the Enigma was the machine (hence WW2)
The enigma was pretty good, but as a method for computer encryption, it is much too complicated for the security payoff. It was complicated because it was a machine. With computers, you would just take a password and use that - no zillion setting of knobs and wheels.
However to answer the original question "can anyone make something like.." - I have done that!

Lots of goodies. The simplest to play with is probably the "handy-dandy ...". It is a demo with pre-set Reflector, Rotors, Steckers, and Message to be encrypted. You can change those.
Also see "The QBasic Enigma Emulator" which has Function Enigma% (zR$, zW$, zS$, zK$, zM$) which encrypts/decripts and can be easily incorporated by you into your own QBasic program.
