Thread: Crypt function on Linux

  1. #1

    Question Crypt function on Linux

    I want to use the crypt function in a program that I am making. I seem to be having troubles using it. Can someone point me in the right direction? (I have read the man crypt)

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you calling the external program properly?

    Give us an example of the code you are using, so we can see what is going on.

    #include <iostream>
    #include <unistd.h>

    void main() {
    char *salt="a9";
    char *key="Secret";

    cout << crypt(key, salt)) << endl;

    ]$ g++ -o test test.cpp

    I was missing this: g++ -o test test.cpp -lcrypt. It works now :-) Thanks for your help.
