Encryption from text to text...

I am looking for an encryption algorithm that converts plain texts into
another
form, one character to another...What are the nice and simple algorithms out
there?

Thanks.

I'm not sure how secure you need it to be, you could use the rot13
method. Used in newsgroups... It changes every letter to the letter 13
places ahead of it. The nice thing about it though is that you use the
same method of to decode, (there's 26 letters).

Not secure, but nice easy and simple.mine not sure how sercure you need it

You can look on CPAN (<http://search.cpan.org >) for various Crypt::
modules.

FYI: this newsgroup is defunct. Try comp.lang.perl. misc in the future.
