Version 1.0 released, grab it at http://fsekrit.donationcoder.com  cheesy

Many thanks to Stefan for the original idea, and for being very patient with me. I've spent more time developing this than I think is reasonable, at least considering my own standards. But now it's done, hopefully pretty stable and usable, and... go download, already tongue

Here's the post that started it all: http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1838.0

fsekrit is uber-cool, man.  A couple little things I think it's missing.

1) Some sort of file > open dialog to import a text file
2) Remember window size on a per-.exe basis.  Some files are wider than others and, surely, I can't be bothered with resizing my own window Wink
3) Take a few command line parameters -- so I can launch fsekrit with the file name and text file to use as the document source already predefined.  This would make it possible to encrypt a text file on the fly using a text editor that supported external tools.

Edit: Yup, window size remembering is working nicely.  I forgot to move one of the files to 1.0

Just a little question before I download fsekrit.
 
Does it support Unicode? I have to work with Unicode all the time, because my native language is Vietnamese.

Thanks a lot.

its only 70k download and doesn't install anything, so its safe to try.
i'd like to know the answer to that question as well, why not download it and let us know if it does?

It does NOT support Unicode.

It displays Unicode correctly as long as I haven't saved the executable file. After that, everything goes mad. Characters turn to "?" symbols.

Funny coincidence, I was actually thinking about unicode when I woke up half an hour ago - then I turn on my box and see this post smiley

I want to support unicode for the next version. I'm not sure whether to save in UTF-16 (windows internal format) or UTF-8 (more compact format), though. UTF-8 might bloat the executable size a bit...

UTF-8, please. smiley

I think the executable size isn't the most important point to focus on. Today we have hundreds gigs of hard disk to waste. smiley

True - and even on a floppy, ~100kb isn't too bad. USB flash drives are even larger, and probably more common than floppy disks today, too. I'm a bit brain-damaged by my assembly background though, and still take pride in small and efficient software  dance

Veeeery cool , thank you!


Seams to be correctly that what i am looking for.
I go to try this out.



Size matters says my women but since i want to have a few password.exe on my CD it's nice to have its size so small.
Remember for 100gig harddiscs there are better other tools to solve this issue.
I want to use this tool on CDs to store my own licences, in case i lend out it so no one can use my licence code
but the code is right by hand if i self need it.
And maybe i store my passwords now on my USB-Stick with fSekrit.
And my own tips on the network share, so no admin can read them anymore  Wink
I can even eMail an fSekrit.exe with an secret password in it or with the wlan key for my mates, or...
...thank you, f0dder.

Here a few step by step screenshots. Text will follow. If anyone want to make an howto with this shots... go ahead.

double click on the fSekrit.exe
enter the text you want to encrypt
choose "Save as..."
choose an path and an name for the xxxxx.exe
enter an password you like, reenter it and press [OK]
your new xxx.exe is created
close fSekrit
Test your new xxx.exe by double click on the new xxx.exe
enter the password
voila :-)     Thank you Mr. f0dder.







All screenshots taken and modifyed with Mr.Mousers great Screenshot Captor tool. Thank you too.

Nice little app! smiley
A very similar app is Steganos LockNote http://www.steganos.com/?content=locknote&language=en, which has a few additional features, like searching in the file and creating an encrypted exe from an existing text-file by dragging it into the program window, which creates an exe-file in the same folder with the same name as the txt-file. Also it's icon has got more colours  Wink
On the negative side, it takes almost 300 kb, which is more than 7 times the size of fSekrit! I bet the huge image in the about dialog uses about the same space as this whole program does. smiley

My whishlist:
• Ability to convert txt-files by dragging and dropping into program
• Unicode (UTF-8) support would be nice, but let the user have the option to download a version without unicode with smaller filesize.

Keep up the good work!

Drag and drop would be nice, I'd settle for a simple commandline parameter, though -- then I could just add fsekret to my send to menu and send files to it directly.  Commandline params are marvelous.

commandline encrypt of a file would be really nice for batching operations as well.

@allen - I love your sig line.  I get a kick out of reading the bits of trivia.  I think it's like a contest to see which ones I already knew.  Stuff like 2x4 is realy 1.5 x 3.5 I know.

I also enjoy coming up with equally factual tidbits when possible.  For example, the one I'm seeing now (not sure if they change) is: "Go is the shortest comlete sentence in the English language"  While I agree, I contend that it shares it's title with "Hi" -- also the shortest complete sentence.   Wink

Peace ...  cheesy

The image just reads a random line from a text file of trivia I have -- you could very easily set one up of your own.  If you want a hand, we can start a new thread for it.

This really shouldn't add much size, since there's (afaik) some usable API calls for this. If my guesstimates are correct, utf-8 support should add less than a kilobyte to the final exe size.

I haven't had much time for programming, unfortunately - most of my time has been spent shopping, cooking, cleaning, drilling holes in the walls etc. Currently visiting my mum + brothers to fix some stuff, but I hope I can get some internet connectivity at home sometime next month or so...
