crack_testlib, crack_testnum, crack_teststr - cracklib test utilities
crack_testlib tests if the input string will be accepted as a valid
password by the installed cracklib dictionary using the FascistCheck(3)
subroutine. crack_testnum tests if the input integer is an index to a
word in the installed cracklib dictionary and returns the word if
found. crack_teststr tests if the input string is in the installed
cracklib dictionary and returns its index number if found.
The database is in a binary format generated by the utilities
crack_mkdict(8) and crack_packer(8). On a Debian system the database
is located in the directory /var/cache/cracklib/cracklib_dict and is
generated daily with the program update-cracklib (8), which is called
from the cron job /etc/cron.daily/cracklib crack.h using the constant
CRACKLIB_DICTPATH though none of the subroutines in the cracklib
libraries have this location hardcoded into their implementations.
Each take one string or number per line. Enter ^C when done.
