The unix crypt routine is a synchronous process using an agorithm simular
to a 1 rotor Enigma'ish routine.  It's not very secure.  It's also NOT
DES....(I learned something there!).  crypt encodes and decodes.  I'll
have to check my library this pm to see if I have the actual algoritm
handy....can't be that hard to implement....
