htpasswd - create and update user authentication files
htpasswd [file] login
htpasswd -I [file]
htpasswd is used to create and update user authentication files for HTTP
The options are as follows:
-I Switch to batch mode. htpasswd reads exactly one line from
standard input and splits it at the first ":". The first part is
the login, the second part is the password which htpasswd then
hashes using bcrypt(3).
htpasswd prompts for a password and generates a hash using bcrypt(3). A
line suitable for a password file is written to the standard output. If
invoked with two arguments (or one argument if the -I flag is used) user
authentication file is updated.
This reimplemented version of htpasswd has been available since
Florian Obser <firstname.lastname@example.org> implemented htpasswd from scratch
after Apache httpd was removed from OpenBSD base.
