DESCRIPTION

       db.login sets user/password for driver/database.

NOTE

       This is only related to SQL database backends (PostgreSQL, MySQL etc).  The passwords  are
       stored  in  a hidden file in the user account ('home' directory) called .grasslogin6. Only
       the file owner can access this file.

EXAMPLES

       Example 1: Username specified, password will be invisibly queried interactively:
       db.login user=bacava

       Example 2: Username and password specified (note that the command lines history will store
       the password in this way):
       db.login user=bacava pass=secret

       Example 3: Username and empty password specified (note that the command lines history will
       store the password in this way):
       db.login user=bacava pass=""
