I'm trying to utilise the crypt/rijndael algorithm in rails. I've written a small script separate from rails that takes a string and using a specified key encrypts it and saves it to a file.
I then would like to be able to copy the string in that file and paste it into my rails application source and decrypt it using the decrypt_block method of rijndael.
The trouble is the string changes between the file and the pasted text in rails. I mean it looks that same but if I puts it out from rails it is different. I think this must be a character encoding problem but I'm not sure...
Does anyone have any ideas?
