I only got 1 reply:
thanks very much to Karl Vogel (email@example.com)
I use a version of "npasswd" that will handle Solaris shadow-password
files. Fair warning: it doesn't handle any NIS or NIS+ stuff, because the
whole point was to cut NIS out of the password loop entirely.
"npasswd" will check a proposed password against the fields in the password
file plus an optional dictionary to make sure you're not using your full
name or a keyboard run like "qwerty" for your new password.
Karl modified this package to be able to handle shadow passwords.
