NAME ^ - Encrypts password in .ini files


Reads the value of a property password in a configuration file ('a la' .ini style), and rewrites the value with the result of its encryption.

Style .ini configuration files are those with a syntax compatible with Config::IniFiles, and briefly this means:

See Config::IniFiles for detailed information about syntax.


    perl --inifile=<ini_file> 
                     [--key=<encryption_decryption_key> ]
                     [--cipher=<encryption_decryption_algorithm> ]



Name or pathname of file whose password value have to be encrypted. It doen't need to have .ini in its name.


Section name in inifile where the password property is.


Encryption / Decryption key in clear form. Use the same value with DBIx::PasswordIniFile.


Name of an installed cipher algoritm. Cipher algorithms live in namespace Crypt::.
