Hello!

I am working on a small decryption / encryption program using Win32 Console Application c++

nothing big, here is my code:

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <conio.h>
#include <stdio.h>

    unsigned char apostrophe;
    int num[100],i,option;

    cout<<"Enter Your Option " << endl;
    cout<<"1. To Encrypt The File " << endl;
    cout<<"2. To Decrypt The File " << endl;

    cin>>option;

How the program works:
choose to encrypt:
you write in the file you want to encrypt, then choose new name for the encrypted file..
choose to decrypt:
you write in the encrypted file name, then choose new name for the decrypted file..

so my problems are following:

Apostrophe e's ( é ) and Apostrophe's ( ´ ) Gets deleted when I decrypt. (which I have in a txt file)

Also when I decrypt, the last character is written 2 times extra.

How can I fix those problems?

Sincerely~

Apostrophe e's ( é ) and Apostrophe's ( ´ ) Gets deleted when I decrypt. (which I have in a txt file)

'apostrophe' is declared and used but never set, changing it to 'ch' in your if statement should correct that.

On a side note, You might be overthinking this a bit. Since your are using binary streams, there really is no need handle special characters and enter key , etc.. You shouldn't want your decrypted file to be easily displayed. Consider how the following simplifies things:

It is true that this is easier to encrypt, but changing the whole content of a txt file the same way with one kind of "key" is not that hard to "crack"

Ofcourse it doesn't need to be hard encrypted but I wouldn't want it easily decrypted..

But, if there is no other way to find an easier fix to what I already started with, I guess this is what I would have to go with..

I will leave this thread open IF someone can find a fix for the code I used, that would be swell..

But for now.. I thank you big time tinstaafl :)
