Hey guys, could you please add some sort of option to generate a password hash for a null byte when using bitlbee -x?

Null bytes can't be passed as arguments to shell functions, because null bytes are used to separate shell arguments.

I need this because I want to create configuration XML from another program (a Chef cookbook in this case), and the cleartext account password for an OAuth user who hasn't authenticated yet is \0

wilmer@peer:~/src/bitlbee/devel$ ./bitlbee -x enc bla ''

Isn't that exactly what you need already?

Thank you for the quick reply.

That is in fact what I needed - I just fucked up somewhere else and mistakenly thought the call with an empty string didn't do what I wanted.

Please close the ticket with my apologies.
