Re: Editing and storing encrypted files
I've played a bit with autocommands in vim (the first time ever
I looked at them), and came up with this (shamelessly stolen
from the default vimrc, there it handles *.bz2):
autocmd BufReadPre,FileReadPre *.gpg set bin
autocmd BufReadPre,FileReadPre *.gpg let ch_save = &ch|set ch=2
autocmd BufReadPost,FileReadPost *.gpg '[,']!gpg --decrypt 2> /dev/null
autocmd BufReadPost,FileReadPost *.gpg set nobin
autocmd BufReadPost,FileReadPost *.gpg let &ch = ch_save|unlet ch_save
autocmd BufReadPost,FileReadPost *.gpg execute ":doautocmd BufReadPost " . expand("%:r")
autocmd BufWritePre,FileWritePre *.gpg '[,']!gpg --encrypt 2> /dev/null
It seems to work for me, and the .swp file is _encrypted_, no
need to disable them.
Could somebody more familiar with vim than me please tell me
(us) wheter this writes anything unencrypted onto disk? If not,
shall I file a wishlist bug against vim-rt to include this?
Note that there are two possible orientations of the log. If the end with the
larger diameter is facing downstream, the log is said to be big-endian;
otherwise, it is little-endian.
