I see - I think. So MAXSIZE=64 would work, even if the passed in string
was less than MAXSIZE, but I should expect upon decryption to get a
string MAXSIZE in length back?
I believe the answer to that question is 'no', it will only return the
same string (and therefore same size) as that it was passed - correct?
As always, thanks for your help.
