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 directory 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 precautionary measure.  It
       would be a disaster to encrypt files a password 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 cryptdir on it without worrying about the already encrypted
       files.

BUGS

       The man page is longer than the program.
