Keep in mind that the crypt() function is ONE WAY! You can encrypt, but
This may sound useless, but what you do is to encrypt what the user sends,
ecrypt it, then compare the encrpted version with the encrypted password.
If the two match, then the password was correct.
perldoc -f crypt
at a shell prompt to see how to use the crypt function.
