Subject description: command line password manager
 

project website: http://nsd.dyndns.org/pwsafe/

"pwsafe is a unix commandline program that manages encrypted password databases.
Features:

* Pure command-line operation if desired (good for remote access over ssh)
* or can interact with X11 selection & clipboard.
* Portable, endianess-clean, misaligned-access-free C++. Compiles cleanly on linux, *bsd, macos x, solaris.
* Compatible with CounterPane's PasswordSafe Win32 program versions 2.x and 1.x.
* Funny comments included in source code.
"

The program creates a database in a hidden file named /root/.pwsafe.dat
You can change the directory and the file name.

Usually you use the program like this:

Code:

pwsafe -u -p name_of_the_entry_in_a_database


this will spit the username and password of the selected entry that you can paste using CTRL+V

For more information on its usage type in a terminal

Code:

pwsafe --help


This is an old command-line version. I post this one because I like it and use it regularly.

Tested on puppy 4.2.0, 4.3.1, 5.0.1
pwsafe-0.2.0.pet
