decode

# $EPIC: decode.txt,v 1.2 2006/07/26 19:47:17 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

$decode(<text>)

Technical:

  • If the <text> argument is omitted the empty string is returned.
  • The <text> argument must be text that was previously returned by the $encode() function. All other inputs will yield undefined results.
  • This function returns the original <text> that was passed to the $encode() function.
  • Hardcoding $encode()d values into your script IS A BAD THING. Please be aware that $encode() may change in the future and your script will break and IT WON'T BE MY FAULT.

Practical:

See the encode(6) help page for examples.

Returns:

Given a string returned by encode(), it returns the original arguments to the encode() function.

Examples:

$encode(hello there)               returns "GIGFGMGMGPCAHEGIGFHCGF"
$decode(GIGFGMGMGPCAHEGIGFHCGF)    returns "hello there"
$decode($encode(hello there))      returns "hello there"

History:

This function first appeared in ircII-2.2pre8
