CRYPTDIR(1)                                           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 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  with  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.
