Password protection script

1
Is there any script for protecting a file in Arch Linux? I have important files that I want to, if you open them you must put a password to see the file.

Probably one of your simplest options is to use a tool like 7-Zip to compress the file using encryption and a password. You would then need the password to decrypt the file. That is mentioned on that website. It does ratehr depend on the level of encryption and security you need. And the file type Open Document files can be saved with a password.

If the target is a text file, use the vi command to edit the file with the -x option.
