Hi,

        Thanks for the hint.

        Just a small note to let you know that my code to decrypt a string will 
return a string with filled with null characters at the end. You should 
trim() it.

        Also, anybody knows how to detect if the PHP build is linked with 2.2 or 2.4? 
I would like my crypt / decrypt functions to detect which mcrypt version is 
used dynamically, so the same code could run with both versions without 
modifications.

        Right now the only way I found is to check whether the MCRYPT_RIJNDAEL_128 
constant (or any other cipher type constants) is a number or a string (these 
constants are strings under 2.4.x and numbers under 2.2.x). Any better way of 
doing this?

        I've checked the php info functions, they can tell if a certain extension is 
present but this is not very helpful..


Thank you,

Cedric
