I'm not that familiar with the details, but does the permission play a role
in the calculations? If so, then it should be keywords. For instance: can

Just curious: how easily can a file be decrypted?

with the linux machine in such a way that it does not break other processes]

Is it possible to post a djgpp cross compiled version? Thanh has a script
