HTPASSWD encryption algorithm for C# or C++

Does anyone know of a C++ or C# function (source code or a DLL) for providing the HTPASSWD encryption algorithm? That is. I'm looking to encrypt passwords and storing them in the HTPASSWD file format and I need the algorithm for encrypting the ASCII passwords.

The encryption algorithm used by Apache to create the .htpasswd files is similar to an MD5 encryption, but it has been modified. The "htpasswd" program that comes with Apache is probably your best bet. You can call it from your C# application and let it do the work.

Thanks.

Thanks for the tip because I was about to try using the MD5 encryption and I would have been disappointed. Do you know how I can access the Apache version? I'm not familiar with the Apache system and interfaces.

I'm not sure how to get the version programatically. I'm unfamiliar with any API libraries for Apache. However, I do know you can get the version at the command prompt (or at least you used to be able to) by typing "apache --version"

Thanks
