Execute a encrypted shell script

Hi All,

I have a shell script test.sh. I encrypted it using the command
vi -x test.sh

, and protected it with a password to view the file.

When i tried to execute the file with ./test.sh..It is trying to execute the encrypted file but not he original one.

Can someone help me with how to execute a encrypted file or to decrypt and execute the same.

Any help is appreciated.

You would have to write a new script that decrypt the encrypted script for it to be executed...
