       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  such  as

       -H, --hash=TYPE
	      Compute  the password using the TYPE algorithm.  If TYPE is help
	      available algorithms are printed.

       -P, --password-fd=NUM
	      Read the password from file descriptor NUM instead of using get
	      pass(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 char
       acters may not be read correctly.

       This programs suffers of a bad case of featuritis.
