    Be patient.. I am sure he will disclose today or tommorow.. May be after he teaches you all.. I will post my next encryption program.. Which is much more complex...

    >>May be after he teaches you all..

    hey, theres nothing to teach, you'll be surprized at the way i got it

    it was luck and some simple deductions that got it

    i'm hoping that uraldor does the 'reverse engineering' stuff he says. thats one useful way to do it.

    Hmm i dont thnk so.. brute force wouldnt work since for every key a sentence will be generated.. Please exolain it.. So that every one can know how you guys did it....


    OK I AM REVEALING IT THE KEY OF THE ENCRYPTION WAS "POWER" without quotes....

    Untill these guys reveal how they did it.. I wanna ask you for you suggestion

    How do you think my next encryption program should be...

    1) Accept inputs from the user through the console window and display it there... Same for decrypting

    2) Accept messages from a user but save the encrypted message as a file . And while decrypting open the file

    3) Accept the input from the file and save the encrypted text into a file.. And decrypt from a file....

    4) Any other...

    Please recomend.. Which do you think is the easiest.... to operate..

    My next encryption program will be based on the XOR algorithm i think.. lets see.. Waiting for your sugestions and the details on how those two managed to crack the previous encryption...

    Vasanth,

    If I can put how I did it into words(?) I will. I'm a little busy now, but I'll try to do it tonight.

    As for encryption, when I did something similar I implemented it as a DLL, so you could create encryption objects useable from other C progs. You set a "key" property, sent it some text, and it returned the encrypted / decrypted data.

    Found that pretty useful, as I could then use it in several proggys.

    Would be really useful as a .lib I guess.

    Thanx robr.. hope to see it here soon..... Ok i think i will follow what you said.. but what do you think it the best way to input and output the encryption.. Through files.. Or just typing it...

    Thanx

    I guess it depends *what* you want to encrypt. I had mine set up as a test form, where you pasted some text, and then you could watch the encryption / decryption happen "real time" like a teletype. I'd post a copy here, but it was Vi*Łal Bas*c!!!!!!!
