source code for IDEA algorithm

hi all,

I am currently pursuing a project which requires IDEA algorithm code. I searched on google for the source code of IDEA algo in C++/C languague but I haven't got any satisfactory result.Can anyone suggest as to from were I can get the source code of IDEA algorithm so that I can directly use it for encryption and decryption purpose.

Thanks in advance...

Try looking at libmcrypt (currently libmcrypt4, I think); it looks like it implements IDEA, along with many others. If using a Debian derived distro, you will also need libmcrypt-dev. See the website at
