# program encrypt command

Syntax

program encrypt source <starget >

Encrypt the source data file so that the contents are not visible or modifiable by the caller. Encrypted files can be used with the program call command the same as normal text files, but the contents have been scrambled and a check is made to see if they were modified.

The data file source is read in, and the encrypted data file $$starget$$ is created.

If an extension is not specified for source then .dat is assumed.

If starget is not specified then the target file will have the same name as the source but with the .edat extension. If an extension is not specified for starget then .edat is assumed.
