Not sure what you mean by format, i just use something like "myFileStream 
<< cipher", and then read it back again. Do you mean that the txt file 
should be utf-8 or something like that? What would be the right way to 
write the ciphered string to the txt file and read it afterwards? Thanks a 
lot for answering btw.
