When used to change a password, B<passwd> prompts everyone for their o +ld password, if any. It then prompts for the new password twice. If executed by a user with USER_PRIV_ADMIN() privilege flag (i.e. supe +r-user), the old password prompt does not appear. Passwords must be constructed to meet the operating system requirement +s =head2 OPTIONS B<passwd> accepts the options described below. =over 4 =item B<userid> The userid to perform a password reset. If null, the current user's p +assword will be reset. =item B<-h> Display syntax. =back =head1 ENVIRONMENT The working of B<passwd> is not influenced by any environment variable +s. =head1 BUGS B<passwd> does not work will in a Samba domain controller environment +(so far). =head1 STANDARDS It does not make sense to talk about standards in a B<passwd> manual p +age. =head1 REVISION HISTORY passwd Revision 1.0 2000/06/22 09:00:34 idnopheq Initial revision =head1 AUTHOR The Perl implementation of B<passwd> was written by Dexter Coffin, I<i>. =head1 COPYRIGHT and LICENSE This program is copyright by Dexter Coffin 2000.
