 Code Snippet 1

    function encryptDecrypt($Str_Message)

    FOR ($Position = 0;$Position<$Len_Str_Message;$Position++){
        $Key_To_Use = (($Len_Str_Message+$Position)+1); 
        $Key_To_Use = (255+$Key_To_Use) % 255;
        $Byte_To_Be_Encrypted = SUBSTR($Str_Message, $Position, 1);
        $Ascii_Num_Byte_To_Encrypt = ORD($Byte_To_Be_Encrypted);
        //uses xor operator
        $Xored_Byte = $Ascii_Num_Byte_To_Encrypt ^ $Key_To_Use;  
        $Encrypted_Byte = CHR($Xored_Byte);
        $Str_Encrypted_Message .= $Encrypted_Byte;

    return $Str_Encrypted_Message;
