Try them... they make your computer become invisible. Actually... they are simple, high speed data "scramblers" (e.g. using string-like xor methods). They were part of other builds, so we tossed them into /Core because they do have value for users who want to hide passwords, obscure data/code, but don't need full scale encryption methods, and don't want to take the trouble to write something themselves. Example usage: key: checksum/secure ask "Enter the key phrase: " str: read %data.txt data: encloak compress str key write/binary %data.bin data At 07:19 AM 2/21/03 +0100, you wrote:

I see... but they weren't in the change notes ;-) As you know I'm a user of the SDK so I guess I don't need them. Some more questions: - Is the RSA functionality fixed in the next SDK? - Any chance on async TCP and IMAP docs? Keep up the good work. --Maarten
