in reply to CryptoPad

I tried to run your script. It encrypts, but dosn't save the encrypted file(actually it saves a "0" length file). I also had to edit the button captions, to shorten them down, else the AES buttons get squashed off of the menus. I like the basic operation though.

    I also had the zero length file problem when I ran it. I tried it on both of my linux boxes (debian:woody and RH:6.2). Both boxes use perl 5.6.1.

    I think the problem is in the line:

    Butler( $fname, "write", \@kurt );

    I am not familiar with File::Butler enough to know what it is doing. I had to load it to run CryptPad. However, I don't see another reference to kurt...except the author's name<G>.

    What sort of system are you running on? I've run it on both Win98 and WinXP and haven't run into the problem you're encountering w/ the zero-length file.

    With regard to the button captions, I designed CryptoPad on a machine running at 1280x1024 resolution, but I believe everything should look ok at 1024x768 as well. Anything less than that and, yes, I'm sure the buttons do get cropped. I've been toying with the idea of having the encryption options as part of a drop-down menu to solve this problem.
