I used to put passwords into a hidden and encrypted file in cygwin. But now it looks like the -x option for vim gives a warning itself that it's not very secure. Plus I have not been able to resolve an issue I posted earlier on here whereby I can not paste to/from VIM in Cygwin to/from Windows. What could I use that's fast and easy. I've thought of just password protecting an XLS file but I've heard of those getting easily hacked. Any other suggestion? Thank you.
