[SILLY QUESTION] Uncrypting passwords

From: Chuck Reed (master@I-55.COM)

I'm working on two different places right now, and I wrote some code to
show imps the password of any player in the game for one of them.  In my
transfering of the code to the second mud, the GET_PASSWD(ch) and
chdata.pwd return the crypted passwords.  This was not the case for the
first mud, but both use password encryption.  I'm guessing that since one
is FreeBSD and the other is Linux (redhat 4.0 i think), that the encryption
is a ton different.  What I'm asking is where I could find a way to DEcrypt
the password string.
