Question about "that thing you key in that's not a user name when you're logging in"

one thing that is very odd is 'mcEncrypt';

firstly because it maybe the only thing in LiveCode that
betrays LiveCode's ancestry in MetaCard,


secondly because the Documentation (7.1) tells us
nothing beyond that it is 'Reserved for internal use'.

That 'Reserved' is all jolly well and good, but made
me feel a bit strange having read the entry for

"ask p_assword" [there's another way of getting round things, even if, 
for Americans,
it might seem a bit 'fruity']

where it says:

'get mcEncrypt(it)'
