PHP original manual for mcrypt_get_block_size [ show | php.net ]

mcrypt_get_block_size

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mcrypt_get_block_sizeGet the block size of the specified cipher

Description

int mcrypt_get_block_size ( int $cipher )
int mcrypt_get_block_size ( string $cipher , string $module )

The first prototype is when linked against libmcrypt 2.2.x, the second when linked against libmcrypt 2.4.x or 2.5.x.

mcrypt_get_block_size() is used to get the size of a block of the specified cipher (in combination with an encryption mode).

It is more useful to use the mcrypt_enc_get_block_size() function as this uses the resource returned by mcrypt_module_open().

This example shows how to use this function when linked against libmcrypt 2.4.x and 2.5.x.

Example #1 mcrypt_get_block_size() example

<?php
    
echo mcrypt_get_block_size('tripledes''ecb');
?>

Prints:
8
