C Question

crypt function and link error "undefined reference to 'crypt'"

I have used the crypt function in c to encrypt the given string.
I have written the following code,


int main()

But the above code threw an error ,"undefined reference to `crypt'".
What is the problem in the above code.

Thanks in advance.

If you want to use the crypt() function, you need to link to the crypt library. Add -lcrypt to your compile command (as the man page tells you to!).
