Post which RPM pakage contains utility of "CRYPT"


I know it's a silly question. But I am learning now and hope anyone could help.
Is there any much more advanced tools?

Errrr... crypt is a function in unistd.h. It's the standard UNIX DES encryption routine...

So, do you mean that if I want to test with that routine, I need to write some simple C code and compile it?

Thanks chort

I tried but met this problem again:

the complier told me that

/tmp/ce7KE7wI.o(text+0x2c): undefined reference to crypt

I have already #include <unistd.h> in front of the source

Linux might keep things in different places than BSD. It might be sys/unistd.h, for example, or something like that.

Try man crypt, or apropos crypt to locate a man page that includes it.
