decrypting a file using "crypt" & "rot13"


Hello all,

I'm new to Unix and working on a school project. I need to be able to decrypt a file that has been encrypted with "crypt" and rot13.

I've figured out the "crypt" part of it but I need to be able to also run rot13 to it as well.

$ crypt <filename

plue the key of course will get me out of the file decrypted but it still remains encrypted use use of rot13

Any help will be appricated.

Thanks.

rot13 is the caeser cipher you can just "spin" the alphabet around 13 and you will get your output, there are multiple websites that you can find that will decipher rot13 or if you want newsreaders also have this capability.
Crypt is easy to break if you download a crack program.
