  PerlIO::via::CBC->config(
    'key'             => 'my secret key',
    'cipher'          => 'Blowfish',

  my $fh;
  open($fh, '>:via(PerlIO::via::CBC)', $file)
    or die "Can't open $file for encryption: $!\n";
  print $fh $lots_of_secret_data;
  close($fh)
    or die "Error closing file: $!\n";

  open($fh, '<:via(PerlIO::via::CBC)', $file)
