     makekey -- make encrypted keys or passwords


     makekey encrypts a key and salt which it reads from the standard input and writes the result
     to the standard output.  The key is expected to be eight bytes; the salt is expected to be
     two bytes.  See crypt(3) for more information on what characters the key and salt can con-
     tain and how the encrypted value is calculated.

     A makekey command appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.
