    Come on, guys. This utility is a very trivial exercise in beginning shell programming.

    Great script and flows well. However, where I think is falls short is that the input file remains in clear text. So perhaps adding a function using the “wipe” utility (if available) and then when decrypting, restore the original file. So basically always remove the input file after encrypting then restore when decrypting.

    Maybe something like this: wipe -ceifr “$_file” & wipe -ceifr *.aes

    Thank you for sharing!!!
