I've been using vi -x forever to encrypt files.  I was reminded the encryption with this is not so hot.  It's just soo convenient.  What would be a more secure method of encrypting when using vi and just as easy?  Thanks.

Thanks.  I was looking for something I could do in a single step as with "vi -x filename".  I am familiar with GPG and guess that will have to do.  Thanks.
