mcrypt_get_key_size -- Get the key size of the specified cipher


int mcrypt_get_key_size ( int cipher)

int mcrypt_get_key_size ( string cipher, string module)

The first prototype is when linked against libmcrypt 2.2.x, the second when linked against libmcrypt 2.4.x or 2.5.x.

mcrypt_get_key_size() is used to get the size of a key of the specified cipher (in combination with an encryption mode).

This example shows how to use this function when linked against libmcrypt 2.4.x and 2.5.x.

Példa 1. mcrypt_get_block_size() example
