I'm wondering why 7zip still uses one field for password encriptation in the GUI.
I think that every input password option should be typed twice to avoid human typing mistakes.
Yes, I wrote this because this had happened to me a few minutes ago, and now I have to brute force my zip file. >:(
Show Password = One Line - SHOWN
Show Password = Two Line - OBSCURED
facepalm for me.
I miss this feature in the commandline version :-|
You want like this?(mockup):
$ 7z a arc file -p
7-Zip 9.20 Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov 2010-11-18
Creating archive arc.7z
Enter password (will not be echoed): <- after entry this prompt
Repeat password (will not be echoed): <- replaced with this prompt
Everything is Ok
> You want like this?
YES. Accept, if both PWD's are identical, or the lower one is empty, reject, if both non-empty and different, or the upper one is empty.
No need to "replace", just drop the 2 lines below each other.
do386, great idea!
