 I am trying to encrypt and decrypt text in my Delphi app. And i want to be   able to save the result ( encrypted text in file a file and load it back eg..
 from .INI file ). I have seen couple of functions here on EE but i can't find
 any that can save it in file without return sign.

you can pass the encripted text to HEX numbers so
the text can be read from INI by lines

var a:integer;

for a:= 1 to length(mystring) do
  b:= b+inttohex(ord(mystring[a]));

you can use this after having encripted the text,
this way the final text will be only characters
from A to F and 0 to 9 so you can read/write
to a stringlist and save/load to file

the only problem is that the text will be doubled...

when you want to desencript you must do the reverse..
