CRYPT (III)                  1/15/73                  CRYPT (III)

NAME            crypt -- password encoding

SYNOPSIS        mov $key,r0

                jsr pc,crypt

DESCRIPTION     On entry, r0 should point to a string of charac-

                ters terminated by an ASCII NULL.  The routine

                performs an operation on the key which is diffi-

                cult to invert (i.e. encrypts it) and leaves the

                resulting eight bytes of ASCII alphanumerics in a

                global cell called "word".

                Login uses this result as a password.

FILES           kept in /lib/liba.a

SEE ALSO        passwd(I),passwd(V), login(I)
