; Function Name:    _StringShiftCipher()
; Description:      Cipher your data
; Parameter(s):     $s_Data     - data to cipher
;                     $i_Key      - number to offset the data
;                               - can be an array to preform a modified caesar cipher
;                   $v_Decrypt  - varient to evaluate to true if this is a decryption
; Requirement(s):   none
; Return Value(s):  On Success - Returns the ciphered string
; Author(s):        gamerman2360
; Note(s):          Made so it can't fail, it just might not return what you want.

Func _StringShiftCipher($s_Data, $i_Key, $v_Decrypt = False)
    If Not IsArray($i_Key) Then
        If $v_Decrypt Then $i_Key *= -1
        $v_Decrypt = $i_Key; reduce, reuse, recycle!
        Dim $i_Key[1] = [$v_Decrypt]; Dim $v[1] = [$v], dosn't work
    ElseIf $v_Decrypt Then; Modified Cipher
        For $i_Iteration = 0 To UBound($i_Key)-1
            $i_Key[$i_Iteration] *= -1
    $s_Buffer = ""
    For $i_Iteration = 1 To StringLen($s_Data)
        $s_Buffer &= Chr(Mod(Asc(StringMid($s_Data, $i_Iteration, 1))+$i_Key[Mod($i_Iteration-1, UBound($i_Key))]+256, 256))
    Return $s_Buffer
I kept seeing things like Chr(Asc($data)+1) but that can cause errors so I wanted to make my own function. One thing let to another and eventually I had enough to the point where I decided to just make my own topic. Please post your comments. :whistle:

PS: It didn't look like this at the start, but I wanted to practice changing it to the UDF standard.

BTW: Modified Caesar Cipher is when you use multiple keys on a piece of data.

Edit: Changed the modified part so it started with the 0 key instead of key 1. :P

Also added array examples.

Edit2: Took 'Caesar' out of there when I learned that when a real Caesar Cipher is is done, it only works on alphabetic characters. ;) Going with _StringShiftCipher().
