This is an Acorn RISC OS port of the CodeGroup program by John Walker (www.fourmilab.ch) to encode and decode arbitary binary data into five-letter code groups, just like spies use. I've pre-compiled a C absolute file and included John Walkers original C source code as well as included the original manual. I hope to write a RISC OS wimp front end at some point, but in the meantime, it's CLI based only.
To encode a file, use *codegroup -e [filein] [fileout] and to decode a file use *codegroup -d [filein] [fileout] where [filein] and [fileout] are valid filenames.
This is an example of some encrypted text.
Better not talk about explosives or anything! :-)
will encode to become:
