What is it : This project provides a command line tool called nms that recreates the famous data decryption effect seen on screen in the 1992 hacker movie Sneakers. For reference, you can see this effect at 0:35 in this movie clip.This command works on piped data. Pipe any ASCII or UTF-8 text to nms, and it will apply the hollywood effect, initially showing encrypted data, then starting a decryption sequence to reveal the original plaintext characters.
