  I originally asked this list for any tools which allows the batch
setting of the password. I got some sample code for RS/6000 AIX 3.2
systems, but the only fix for my situation (SunOS 4.1.3) is to use
the very nice expect package. The expect package can be ftp'd from in the /pub/src/expect sub-directory. The doc'n
covers an example of how to have a password change performed in a
'batch' mode.

My thanks to Perry Hutchinson, Robert P K Lyle, and David Nessl who
all suggested using the expect package.
