This function encodes a string using a specified algorithm.

Syntax

string|false encodeString ( string algorithm, string input, table options )  

Required Arguments

  • algorithm: The algorithm to use.
  • input: The input to encode.
  • options : A table with options and other neccessary data for the algorithm, as detailed below

Options for each algorithm

  • tea:
    • key (string) A key to tea-encode the input with

Returns

Returns the encoded string if successful, false otherwise.

Server
addCommandHandler("encode", 
    function(player, _, algorithm, key, ...)
        if algorithm and key then
            local text = table.concat({...}, " ")
            if type(text) == "string" and text ~= "" then
                local encoded = encodeString(algorithm, text, { key = key })
                if encoded then
                    outputChatBox("The result of " .. algorithm .. " encoding is: " .. encoded, player)
                else
                    outputChatBox("Failed to encode. Make sure that all arguments are valid.", player, 255, 0, 0)
                end
