I assume you mean Buddy API's baEncryptFile or baEncryptText functions.  AN easier way might be to always save teh text encrypted with baEncryptText instead of baEncryptFile.  This way you know the text you read in is always encrypted and easier to test.  

Placing a word or char in the first line is also a safe way to test if its properly decrypted.
