So how did you find that the output of crypt contained those magic letters?

    Hi tweetiepooh,

    Just by writing a Perl script to randomly choose plaintext strings, using upper or lower case for each letter of "fractal:" at random, and then test those with every legal salt value, until the output of crypt gave me the desired result!


    s''(q.S:$/9=(T1';s;(..)(..);$..=substr+crypt($1,$2),2,3;eg;print$..$/
