Re: Can I latex a file encrypted with vim?
The bottom line is that if the file is encrypted then it must be decrypted before latex can compile it. You could perhaps construct a single commandline instruction to do this by using a pipe to send the output of decryption to latex. It does seem like a very odd thing to want to do though. Usually when people want to do such odd things I find that they have a perfectly sane objective in mind but have chosen to go about it in a strange way. So could you perhaps explain why you want to do this. What are you hoping to achieve? I suspect there is likely to be an alternative means of achieving your real objective in a simpler fashion.
Life's a pitch. And then you sing!
