Entropy calculator - dev version in progress

My "entropy.py" scripts computes the entropy a file, indicating how random its content is. Possible uses include finding encrypted or compressed files.

  • A Shebang to allow execution without having to specify "python entropy.py"
  • The "-t" command-line parameter to specify a minimal entropy. Files whose entropy is below the threshold won't be displayed.

You will find my git repository here.
