From on of my mailing lists:

CRYPT AN ASCII FILE

An ascii file can be easily encrypted and

decrypted.

To encrypt simply pipe the STDOUT of

the file to "crypt" and redirect it to

a new file name. Enter a passowrd when

prompted with "Enter key".

$ cat foo | crypt > foo.e

Enter key:

To unencrypt simply pipe the STDOUT of

the encrypted file to "crpyt" and

redirect it to a new file name. Enter

a passowrd when prompted with

"Enter key".

$ cat foo.e | crypt > foo.new

Enter key:
