NAME

       pw-inspector - A tool to reduce the password list

SYNOPSIS

       pw-inspector [-i FILE] [-o FILE] [-m MINLEN] [-M MAXLEN] [-c MINSETS] -l -u -n -p -s

DESCRIPTION

       PW-Inspector  reads passwords in and prints those which meet the requirements.  The return
       code is the number of valid passwords found, 0 if none was found.  Use for security: check
       passwords,  if  0  is  returned,  reject  password  choice.   Use  for  hacking: trim your
       dictionary file to the pw requirements of  the  target.   Usage  only  allowed  for  legal
       purposes.
