       clivepass - the login password utility for clive


       clivepass [option]...


       clivepass is a replacement for stored plain-text website login
       passwords used with clive(1). It keeps website login passwords
       encrypted in a repository file that can be accessed with a global
       passphrase. Typically these login passwords are passed in plain-text
       form to clive(1) on command line or from a config file.

       Note that even though the passwords are encrypted on disk, they are
       passed in plain-text over the network. This means the passwords are
       still visible to anyone intercepting the network traffic.

       Historically, a similar utility existed as part of clive 1.0 but was
       removed in clive 2.0 and later rewritten in Perl as part of the clive-
       utils project which is a set of additional utilities for clive(1).

       -e --edit=username

       -s --show
           Dump all saved login usernames to stdout.

       -d --delete=username
           Delete username from passwd file.


       Create new password repository file:
           % clivepass -c

       Add "myusername" to the repository:
           % clivepass -a myusername

           Note that "myusername" should be the login username for the

       Get login password for "myusername":
           % clivepass -g myusername

           There is a more comprehensive example of clive(1) using
           clivepass(1) in the clive(1) manual page.


       clivepass searches the ~/.config/clive-utils directory for the config
       file.  You can override this by setting the CLIVEPASS_HOME environment

           Password file. Contains the salted passphrase hash and login
           usernames and encrypted passwords.
