Sooo it has been a long month and even longer week.
A coworker and I was discussing "encryption" techniques and stuff at lunch. ROT13 came up. Works on string but not on anything else. But why cant we write something similar for binary? something that takes all the 1s and makes 0s and all the 0s and make 1s. It really isnt encrypted it is just obfuscated. and to decrypt it you just encrypt it for a second time. just like ROT13. And if we do it at the binary level we really dont care the file type or anything.
as we were talking about doing it in various languages, all was great until it came to Xojo. I could not think of a good way to do it in Xojo without writing a C based plugin and calling the methods of that plugin (or dll).
So for an educational discussion how would yall do it?
