Which version do you have installed? Use "aescrypt -v" to tell you. There was a bug I recently fixed related to that.

That one should work. Hmmm.

Can you tell me the version of Linux you're using? I can give it a try to see why that error is occurring.

And you did get the code from https://www.aescrypt.com/download, I assume?

I am using non debian and non gui client given Linux os and when I am trying to execute the script I am getting a suggestion try in this format
aescrypt {-e|-d} [{-p <password> | -k <keyfile>}]{[-o <output filename>] <file> | <file> [<file>...]}
and may I know is there any other script format for encryption

I'm confused. Are you still getting an iconv related error or only this usage error or both?

If you tell me exactly what Linux you're using, I can try to install it and test.

Also, without revealing a password, what are you typing at the command line when you get the usage error?

I don't understand. NFS is a network file system, not a version of Linux. I need to know what distribution and version you're using (e.g., Fedora 24, Centos version x.y, or whatever).
