String encryption with password

While searching for some thing, I found a string encryption code sample for Visual Basic, and I just wanted the same in php, and did a port. Just like what F. Balena has done over there, this function is also used for both, encrypt as well as decrypt.


<?php
function stringEncrypt($str$pass){
    
$strlen strlen($str);
    
$passIndex 0;
    
$passLen strlen($pass);
    
// null passwords wont encode
    
if(strlen($pass) == 0
        return 
$str;
    for (
$i 0$i $strlen$i++){
        
// get the next char in the password
        
$passChr ord($pass[($i $passLen)]);
        
// encrypt one character in the string
        
$str[$i] = chr(ord($str[$i]) ^ $passChr);
        
// modify the character in the password (avoid overflow)
        
$pass[($i $passLen)] = chr(($passChr 17) & 255);
    }
 return 
$str;    
}
