Implementation

Post by tomiwah » Wed May 06, 2015 5:34 am

hello,
i am new to programming and i have interest in security. i downloaded the source code for AESCrypt.java, i read through it but there was no where for the user to specify password, frompath and topath and everytime i clicked the execution button it gave me the "AESCrypt e|d password fromPath toPath" message even when i imported a scanner to specify the paths
please is a more usable java source code i can access?
thank you.

Perhaps you are looking for a GUI. The Java code is does not have a GUI. If you want to play with the Java code, you'll need to do that from the command line. You enter that information as parameters, which is what that message is telling you.

If you're just double clicking on something, you're not at a command prompt. How are you running this? What is the command line arguments you're entering exactly?
