New github release: Enc
I’ve added a new github repository to my account: Enc. It’s a module containing a variety of encoders, mainly for string encoding. Yes, I know. Please don’t envy me for being so creative with the name. It’s a gift.
Its intended use is for web application fuzzing and the like, but you can of course also use it for whatever string encoding purposes you have. The main reasons why I started to write Enc are that I’m forgetful and I don’t like to repeat myself. I always wrote the same little one- or two-liners again and again, or, worse, I repeatedly searched for them on the net (how do I XOR two strings in Ruby again?). I finally got fed up and started to collect these little snippets in a, hopefully useful, module. My plan is to add new encoders as I need them or think they may be useful someday.
The module includes a very basic command line tool which reads from stdin and writes to stdout. Run the module file with -h to see the currently available encoders:
