u3060 user exit

The u3060 user exit encrypts a character string. The result is always an 8-character hexadecimal string.


result = oconv(var, ’u3060’)


This is the same user exit called by the password program.

Note: There is no user exit to decrypt a string.

The accepted practice is to input a string, encrypt it, and compare the two encrypted values for a match.


a = "FRED"
b = oconv(a, ’u3060’)
(b = 8F7D5A29)
a = "fred"
b = oconv(a, ’u3060’)
(b = D3575E89)
