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.
