    that's how he will judge. my view is that if it's a logical and useful interface, it will get points no matter how it is implemented. yes, of course, encryption gets more points. look at the criteria. creativity counts double, not to mention a seperate category for strength.

    And is it ok. if i accepts meesage from the user keyboard save the encrypted message in a file.. And decrypt it by loading a file..... Please clarify
    as i said above, ideally the text should either be
    • read from standard input, maybe using command line redirection syntax
    • typed in at a prompt within the program
    • provided in a file, where the file name can be changed within the program

    so, in short, yes you can do that.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
