From manual page:
In the Description for the various hash types, there is NO mention of the salt having to end in "$".  But in the Examples (eg BlowFish), the salt ends in "$".

Wht exactly is going on here?  Is the ending "$"; required, not required, or optional?  Does it's presence or absence affect the result in any way?
