mkpasswd - Overfeatured front end to crypt(3)
mkpasswd PASSWORD SALT
mkpasswd encrypts the given password with the crypt(3) libc function using the given salt.
-S, --salt=STRING Use the STRING as salt. It must not contain prefixes like $1$. -H, --hash=TYPE Compute the password using the TYPE algorithm. If TYPE is missing available algorithms are printed. -P, --password-fd=NUM Read the password from file descriptor NUM instead of using getpass(3). If the file descriptor is not connected to a tty then no other message than the hashed password is printed on stdout. -s, --stdin Like --password-fd=0.
If the --stdin option is used, passwords containing some control characters may not be read correctly.
This programs suffers of a bad case of featuritis.
