CRYPTDIR(1)		    General Commands Manual		   CRYPTDIR(1)

NAME
       cryptdir	- encrypt/decrypt all files in a directory

SYNOPSIS
       cryptdir	[ dir ]
       decryptdir [ dir	]

INTRODUCTION
       cryptdir	 encrypts all files in the current directory (or the given di-
       rectory if one is provided as an	argument).  When called	as  decryptdir
       (i.e., same program, different name), all files are decrypted.

NOTES
       When  encrypting,  you are prompted twice for the password as a precau-
       tionary measure.	 It would be a disaster	to encrypt files with a	 pass-
       word that wasn't	what you intended.

       In  contrast, when decrypting, you are only prompted once.  If it's the
       wrong password, no harm done.

       Encrypted files have the	suffix .crypt appended.	 This  prevents	 files
       from  being  encrypted  twice.	The suffix is removed upon decryption.
       Thus, you can easily add	files to an encrypted directory	and run	crypt-
       dir on it without worrying about	the already encrypted files.

BUGS
       The man page is longer than the program.
