Alright, I am new to codeguru and I hope to help out a lot in the future, but heres my question. I am making a program that I am going to use for encryption and decryption.

Is there a way to have an array of 8-9 digit numbers being entered all at once? I would take any format that this would have to be done in. The reason I need to do it all at once is that the program is suppose to make encrypting and decrypting much easier. Each of those rather large numbers represents a letter.

Is there a format that I should use so that the user and put in sets of numbers like xxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxx all in one line at one time and the program would spit back a word by converting the number to letters?

Thanks so much for your help. I hope this isn't too unclear to any of you.
