crypt weirdness?

Recommended Posts

The code below gives different output for the first and second consolewrite. I would expect them to be the same. anyone know why?


#include <crypt.au3>
 Global $trash = _Crypt_DecryptData("0x79C031100AB21FCCA613C0ECBCDF498E", "A3D2E1F021BB095", $CALG_AES_256)

func funcy()
   ConsoleWrite(@crlf & $trash)

Nothing to do with the Crypt library. The return value from _Crypt_DecryptData is binary and should be converted to a string before being written to the console. It would seem that  for some reason ConsoleWrite is being extra-nice in the first call and doing the translation for you  - even though the Help file says:


Binary data is written as-is. It will not be converted to a string. To print the hex representation of binary data, use the String() function to explicitly cast the data to a string.

If you do the conversion explicitly you do get matching returns:

#include <crypt.au3>

Global $trash = _Crypt_DecryptData("0x79C031100AB21FCCA613C0ECBCDF498E", "A3D2E1F021BB095", $CALG_AES_256)
ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString($trash) & @CRLF)

func funcy()
   ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString($trash) & @CRLF)
