CharXOR()

CHARXOR()

Combine corresponding ASCII value of two strings with bitwise XOR

Syntax

      CHARXOR( <[@]cString1>, <cString2> ) --> cXOrString

Arguments

<[@]cString1> first string <cString2> second string

Returns

<cXOrString> string with bitwise XOR combined ASCII values

Description

The CHARXOR() function constructs a new string from the two strings passed as parameters. To do this, it combines the ASCII values of the corresponding characters of both strings with a bitwise XOR-operation and places a character in the resulting string whose ASCII value equals to the result of that operation. If the first string is passed by reference, the resulting string is stored in <cString1>, too. By setting the CSETREF()-switch to .T., the return value can be omitted. If <cString2> is shorter than <cString1> and the last character of <cString2> has been processed, the function restarts with the first character of <cString2>.

Examples

      // easy encryption
      ? charxor( "This is top secret !", "My Password" ) // --> <encrypted sentence>

Tests

      charxor( charxor( "This is top secret !", "My Password" ), "My Password" ) == "This is top secret !"

Compliance

CHARXOR() is compatible with CT3’s CHARXOR().
