mcrypt_generic -- This function encrypts data


string mcrypt_generic (resource td, string data)

This function encrypts data. The data is padded with "\0" to make sure the length of the data is n * blocksize. This function returns the encrypted data. Note that the length of the returned string can in fact be longer then the input, due to the padding of the data.
