# $EPIC: encryptparm.txt,v 1.2 2007/02/22 05:07:29 jnelson Exp $

Synopsis:

$encryptparm(<nickname>)

Description:

Given a <nickname>, if you are having a SED encrypted conversation with that <nickname> on the current server, this function returns the metadata about that conversation as a three qword list.

Word Description
0 The nickname
1 The cipherkey
2 The external encryption program
3 The cipher type (NOT CURRENTLY USED – MAY BE USED IN FUTURE)

Since the return value is a qword list, if any of the values contain spaces, they will be enclosed in double quotes. The double quotes are not considered part of the words. Use $qword() to extract the values from this list.

In the future, word 3 will contain the cipher type, but for now, it is not included. You should be prepared for this eventuality.

In the future, this function will work for encryption types other than SED, but for now, nothing other than SED is supported.

History:

This function first appeared in epic4-1.1.3.
