blowfish-encrypt

Arguments: value &key key end context pad in-place (external-format :utf-8) (mode :ecb) iv

The second value will also be the length of the array returned as the first value if the in-place is nil (which is its default). If in-place is true, the second returned value will be less than or equal to the length of the first returned value.

The arguments are:
