I am looking for software implementations of one-time pad encryption. Ideally, these would be cross platform, and command line open-source would be even better. This is mostly for fun, and I've considered just sitting down and writing my own, which I may very well do anyways, once I see what else is out there.

i've played with it... it's a fun toy, and may be useful for more. not too many command line options, but the ones it has are very useful. also useful is that the ciphertext can be broken into more than just 2 shares, and that you can specify a pad or have one generated on the fly.
