pike.git/lib/modules/Crypto.pmod/Arcfour.pmod:1:   #pike __REAL_VERSION__ + #pragma strict_types      //! Arcfour is a stream cipher, also known under the trade marked name   //! RC4, and it is one of the fastest ciphers around. A problem is   //! that the key setup of Arcfour is quite weak, you should never use   //! keys with structure, keys that are ordinary passwords, or   //! sequences of keys like @expr{"secret:1"@}, @expr{"secret:2"@},   //! ..... If you have keys that don't look like random bit strings,   //! and you want to use Arcfour, always hash the key before feeding it   //! to Arcfour.
