NAME

       pwsafe - Secure Password Manager

SYNOPSIS

       pwsafe [-g config-file ] [-u user ] [ -h host ] [-r] [ database ]
       pwsafe -v database
       pwsafe [-e|-d] file
       pwsafe [-c|-s|-m]

DESCRIPTION

       pwsafe manages your passwords in a convenient yet secure manner.

OPTIONS

       -g     config-file  This  will  cause the specified config-file to be used for loading and
              storing preferences, instead of the default pwsafe.cfg (see FILES ).

       -u     user This will cause the application  to  read  and  write  preferences  under  the
              specified user instead of under the login name.

       -h     host  This  will  cause  the  application  to  read and write preferences under the
              specified host , instead of under the machine's name.

       -r     [database] This will open the specified database in read-only mode. If  a  database
              is  not  specified, then the application will prompt the user for a database, which
              will be opened in read-only mode.

       -v     database This will validate the database after the correct passphrase  is  entered,
              correcting  internal  inconsistencies as necessary. Mostly useful when working with
              databases written by other applications.

       -c     This will start the application closed, that is, with no database, and without  the
              initial opening dialog (To access a database, use the File menu).

       -s     This will start the application "silently", that is, minimized and with no database
              (unless one is specified).  When  the  application  is  unminimized,  the  user  is
              presented  with the opening dialog box.  Note: This implicitly puts the application
              in the system tray.

       -m     This is the same as the -c option,  with  the  addition  that  the  application  is
              started as minimized.

FILES

       ~/.pwsafe/pwsafe.cfg
              The  application's  preference file. Note that all security-related preferences are
              stored as part  of  the  password  database.  This  file  only  stores  preferences
              pertaining to appearance, such as last size & location of the application's window,
              last files opened, etc.
       ~/.pwsafe/pwsafe.psafe3
              The user's default password database. A different database  may  be  specified  via
              command line, the initial dialog box or the File->Open menu.

ENVIRONMENT

       PWS_PREFSDIR
              If  set,  pwsafe will look for the preference file in this directory rather than in
              ~/.pwsafe.

DIAGNOSTICS

       pwsafe Will issue error messages if the database is  damaged.  If  this  occurs,  invoking
       pwsafe with the -v option may help.

BUGS

       The -s , -c and -m options are currently unimplemented.
