Random hash generator[edit]

random_hash(len)

random_hash()


Description: Generates a random filled hash containing numbers and (capitol) letters. It will generate and return a hash that is 'len' characters long. If 'len' is not specified, then a 32 character hash will be assumed.

Purpose: Random hashes are, often, used in place of passwords. It is considered more secure than storing a reversible hash simply because it cannot be reversed (as it contains no real information). For example, after a successful login, a server might generate a random hash for that specific user. The client (user) will now use the random hash for future authentication instead of the password.

-- If length is less than or equal to zero, or unspecified, 32 bytes will be assumed.

  if( len == nil or len <= 0 ) then len = 32; end;
  local holder = ""; -- a string for holding our hash temporarily
 
 
  -- create an array of all acceptable characters that can be put in our hash.
  local hash_chars = {"0", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "A", "B", "C", "D", "E",

memory Write String[edit]

memoryWriteString(proc, address, msg)


Description: Enters a string into memory.

Purpose: So strings can be written. Be sure not to write a string that's greater than the strings allocated memory.

function memoryWriteString(proc, address, msg)
  local l_msg_len = msg:len()

    --debug_message("char: " .. l_char);
    memoryWriteByte(proc, address + i, l_char)
  end
  memoryWriteByte(proc, address + l_msg_len, 0)
end

Experience per Hour[edit]

Description: Estimates the total experience in a hour. Can be extended for Gold, Kills or anything else.
