View as plain text  
I dont know if it helps, but I dont decrypt, instead, I compare the crypted
value on the DB against the output of the function PASSWORD() filled with
the pwd I get from the user... It works for me (and I'm using APACHE and
MySQL all in plain "ANSI C"). Leonardo Javier Belén. AFIP-AR
