Subject [users@httpd] Are passwords with embedded spaces allowed using htdbm?
Date Sat, 09 Jun 2018 14:00:04 GMT
I can get htdbm to accept a cleartext password with spaces when using the
mode where I enter the password at the command line, e.g.,

  htdbm -cB dbmfilename user

and the password is validated ok using

  htdbm -vB dbmfilename user

but I can’t get it to work using the batch mode:

  htdbm -cbB dbmfilename user passwordwithspaces

I have tried using single quotes around the password as well as backslashes
before the space without success.

I would love to be able to programmatically use passwords with spaces if
anyone can show me how to do it.


Best regards,
