    is the following encryption normal?

    i am using a pbkdf2 function i found on the internet, and when the password is "sparrow" this shows weird symbols:


    7he3u'&gG TMNM_N$7)svi.Mlg1OK'=56݀L*@n|'f7/]է m30@Of]юI IY|GZ;pa

    ....ummm, well, is that normal?
    i was expecting normal A-Z0-9a-z sort of thing...
    thanks !

    It will show you whatever it can show you regardless of whether or not it 'looks' normal.

    Many useful explanations and tips including: Cannot modify headers - already sent, The IE if (isset($_POST['submit'])) bug explained, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, debugging tips and much more!

    I suspect you could use full text or a blob. Varchar will be useless since you'll never know the length.
