I need a delphi 2010 function abd procedure for solving ROT13 using string and stringlist


something like


Tciphermode = (cmEncrypt, cmDecrypt)

function ROT13(AStr: String; cMode: TcipherMode): String;
begin
 //
 result:=
end;


procedure ROT13(Lines: TStringList; cMode: TcipherMode)
begin
 //
end;

thanks

are you looking for this code   http://www.linuxhilfen.org/c/c_aufsteiger_rot.html    converted to pascal ?

Found something, hope it is what you need :)
function ROT13(AStr: String): String;
var
  i: integer;
  c: char;
begin
  for i := 1 to Length(AStr) do begin
    c := AStr[i];

    if (((c >= 'A') AND (c <= 'M')) OR ((c >= 'a') AND (c <= 'm'))) then
      c := chr(ord(c) + 13)
    else if (((c >= 'N') AND (c <= 'Z')) OR ((c >= 'n') AND (c <= 'z'))) then
      c := chr(ord(c) - 13);

    Result := Result + c;
  end;
end;

@bjove:

that works if you use the same function to encrypt and decrypt. I was looking for a function that you passed another parameter (Tciphermode)

also, a procedure that does the same, but uses a TSringList

your 25% maybe 30% there

Why do you need cMode param? Same function encrypts and decrypts.
procedure ROT13(AStrLst: TStringList);
var
  i, j: integer;
  c: char;
  AStr: string;
  s: string;
begin

  for i := 0 to AStrLst.Count - 1 do begin
    AStr := AStrLst[i];
    s := '';
    for j := 1 to Length(AStr) do begin
      c := AStr[j];

      if (((c >= 'A') AND (c <= 'M')) OR ((c >= 'a') AND (c <= 'm'))) then
        c := chr(ord(c) + 13)
      else if (((c >= 'N') AND (c <= 'Z')) OR ((c >= 'n') AND (c <= 'z'))) then
        c := chr(ord(c) - 13);

      s := s + c;
    end;
    AStrLst[i] := s;
  end;
end;

ROT13 works like the classic XOR ecyption/decryption. The same code works both ways so you dont need to specify in your code that you are either cyphering or decyphering

@ewangoya

but thats what i am looking for

i can google all the code that has been offered already here.

I am looking for way - if its possible, to encrypt, and decrypt

if you execute  rot13 function twice you get the original message back

use the rot13 code from   http://forum.delphi-treff.de/showthread.php?24859-Algorithmen-Rot13 

and make a button like


procedure TForm1.Rot13_ButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
     MsgEdit.text := ROT13_DeCode(MsgEdit.text);
end;

it does nor make any sense a separate encrypt, and decrypt   function
