bnpass - bnetd password utility
bnpass [options] [--] [cleartextpassword]
bnpass is a small utility which will output the ASCII hashed version of the clear text password in the same format as used in bnetd account files. This may be useful for writing a script to generate accounts or to reset a password in the bnetd user database.
If cleartextpassword is not specified you will be prompted to enter it into the standard input.
