can anyone tell me what i did wrong with the decryption part of this code? ive been looking at it for some time now (while working on other related stuff), and i cant seem to find the problem with it. its getting really retarded, on my part

and this is not homework! i do not take any computer classes at all. im doing this because i want to, but im stuck, and cant find any answers

``````# Tiny Encryption Algorithm

return (value1 +value2)%(2**32)

if value[-1] == 'L':
value = value[0:-1]
while len(value)<size:
value = '0' + value
return value

ctext =TEA('0123456789abcdef',key,'e')
print ctext,ctext == '126c6b92c0653a3e'	# gives me true

ctext = TEA(ctext,key,'d')
print ctext, ctext == '0123456789abcdef'	# gives me false: 66dfc50da4915142``````

isnt this basically what is shown on wikipedia, but in python? so why isnt it working?
