Please post a url with a Dos or Win95 version of HTTPd's HTPASSWD, or any other working encoder for .htpasswd files.

the htpassword program's source code is included with the APACHE web server application.  Go to www.apache.org and download it.

It's the SOURCE code.  I'm sure that a non-graphical program like htpasswd would be fairly easy to port if it hasn't been done already.  I believe that APACHE has release a Win32 version of APACHE already.

I do not need the source code, but a program that can encode the passrwords ! The source will not encode anything without a compiled program !

Duh!  Get the source code, compile it, and run it.  You can get GCC free for almost any operating system ever made so it won't even cost you anything.

What the heck is GCC ?
Is the compiler included in the package ?

If I would know this already I would not ask !

GCC is the GNU free C compiler.  Probably the best MSDOS implementation is by D.J. Delorie and is called DJGPP.  You can find it at http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/

*That* argument was worth 5 points? Raptor, if you weren't happy with jhance's answer (ie - you wanted a compiled version and not the source code) why didn't you reject the answer until he gave you details of how to compile it? That way nobody is forced to spend points (albeit only 5) on comments which don't answer the question...

adrianward : He got 50 (fifty) points ! Previously asked questions are sold for 10% of their value !

He answered my question at last so he has earned the points.

He could have done better... He could have got an A grade..

Great suggestion re compiling the source code but gcc compiler isn't exactly the most common tool you'd find on a non unix related box.

And having just spent around 30mins of my time looking for the source code for Crypt.c I don't think the answer raptor got deserves to many points. Especially seeing as Apache.org hardly signposts the source code referred to. I managed to get it from somewhere else. But without the two functions I need:
Crypt() and GetPass()
