BUILT-IN MATHEMATICA SYMBOL
writes an encoded version of the file source to the file dest.
decodes the file before reading its contents.
Encode["source", "dest", "key"]
produces an encoded file that must be read in using Get["dest", "key"].
- Encoded files contain only printable ASCII characters. They begin with a special sequence that is recognized by Get.
- On certain computer systems Encode["source", "dest", MachineID->"ID"] can be used to generate an encoded file that can be read only on a computer with a particular $MachineID.
- No function is provided in Mathematica to convert encoded files back to their original form.
Set up the name of a file that can be used as temporary storage:
