memfrob - frobnicate (encrypt) a memory area
The memfrob() function encrypts the first
bytes of the memory area
s by exclusive-ORing each character
with the number 42. The effect can be reversed by using
memfrob() on the encrypted memory area.
Note that this function is not a proper encryption routine as the XOR constant is fixed, and is suitable only for hiding strings.
The memfrob() function returns a pointer to the encrypted memory area.
