    If you use flp1969's example including the sample command line snippet, it's not supposed to display anything to screen. Did you check the files?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Also, ch is still a char when it should be an int, as mentioned by Click_here in post #3.

    And honestly, just call it "encryption" if you will. As I noted in post #8, in a cryptographic context, the use of "code" and "encoding" here is inappropriate as it refers to a different though related concept: it is a simple substitution cipher, as exceedingly simple as it may be.

    OK. I actually tried this program with another way too by opening two files i.e. fp and ft then closing both and removing the fp and then renaming the ft as fp. But in this process I was not being able to observe all three files status.
