Thanks so much for this clarification. All works fine now.

OK here is an example of encryption/decryption

echo "hello world" | mb --b64


echo "Y2lhbwo=" | mb --b64 -d

hello world

mb printed the help because you didn't specified the base to decode

Thanks for the response!

I tried this on a base64 encoded string, but instead of hanging, it now displays the help file for mb.

Maybe there is a different way to feed mb with the string?

The -d option is expecting the input in pipe, so the correct syntax is

echo "encoded string" | mb -d

Unable to decrypt.

'mb -d [string]' or 'mb --decrypt [string]' hangs at command prompt

-f option works fine and encrypts properly.
