Perl has a function called crypt() that you could look at but that only 
does encryption (why do you need to decrypt?). Alternatively you could get 
PGP off the net. You could also try looking at the secure_rpc routines if 
they are available on your platform.

It would be useful if you could give a little bit more information about 
what you are trying to achieve. Do you want to force users to access Sybase 
only through applications controlled by you or what?
