Basic Crypt::Blowfish usage questionby DaWolf (Curate)
|on Mar 30, 2002 at 23:58 UTC||Need Help??|
DaWolf has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to do some basic operations using Crypt::Blowfish here, but I'm not getting it too good as I thought I would.
This module looks very simple to use, but I'm missing something here.
I was sucessfull to encrypt a string but can't decrypt it. I've followed the module documentation and did like this:
and, to decrypt:
So, if I try to put the encrypted string for the module to decrypt it, it returns this:
"input must be 8 bytes long at C:/Perl/site/lib/Crypt/Blowfish.pm line 68, <> line 1"
Can anyone explain this to me? Why it doesn't works? If it must be 8 bytes long why does it generate a longer string?
Thanks in advance, brothers.
