Re: [Circle] plrtoascii--How do I get an unecrypted passwd?

imho, you shouldnt be able to see the password... this takes away a bit of
trust between the players and the impls, and is not really necessary. if
someone forgets, use set file <person> passwrd <newpass>... and im not
sure, but i think the crypt() is a one way encryption ? if you really want
to, just take away all references to crypt() and replace it with a normal
text pass...
