NAME

       update-cracklib - Regenerate cracklib dictionary

SYNOPSIS

       update-cracklib

DESCRIPTION

       update-cracklib   builds   a  compressed  and  accumulated  version  of
       wordlists stored in the directories given in  cracklib’s  configuration
       file  /etc/cracklib/cracklib.conf.  Programs  using cracklib2 need this
       database to be of any use.

       By default this script is called by cron every day.

RESULT

       update-cracklib prints out two numbers: the number of words  read  from
       the  ASCII dictionaries and the number of words eventually written into
       the cracklib database; if no error occurred, these should be equal.

       0 is returned on success, otherwise an  error  message  is  printed  to
       standard error and -1 is returned.

FILES

       /etc/cracklib/cracklib.conf
              shell  script  that  sets  cracklib_dictpath_src which must be a
              space separated list of source dictionary files.
