how to install encrypt in RHEL 5


Dear All,
We are migrating an application from UNIX to RHEL 5.
We found one of the code snippet uses encrypt command.
It looks like this
$exec_command = "/usr/local/bin/encrypt";
By this it seems that is either installed through some tar or rpm files.
Can you please help me to install encrypt.

I do not think the encrypt command exists for Linux, i may be wrong you may have to port that functionality to openssl or gpg

A quick Google search turns up the Encrypt for Linux web site:

https://albinoloverats.net/encrypt

You can download either the source or an RPM there.

I think the user was thinking of the linux version of the unix command encrypt http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819...crypt-1?a=view The application link provided is not a linux port of the unix command. It may not have the same switches as the unix command.

Thanks for reply.
In one of our environment (LINUX) i found encrypt was installed as a perl file.

The contents of the file looks like this:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

while (<>) {
tr/!"#\$%&'\(\)\*\+,-\.\/0123456789:;<=>\?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ\[\\\]\^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz\{\|\}~/z\{,Yh\\kL:gDw&Fip7Ua9\/d\|yfb0\[@HvWr~\+N\*\?o'J\}VPxSQeZtCn4=m5`2\.8Bl1%R^OqT#"G\)M3_>I\-;\$EuXK6sc<A\(j!\]/;
print;
}

Can you please throw some light on this.

That is simply a substitution of the input with different values using the perl tr function. I have not worked out the whole regex but that is the basic functionality.
