Hi, I think there was a typo in Abe's earlier reply and what he meant is that newlines are _not_ acceptable password characters unfortunately.

Regards,
Kate

Hey there,

I do believe that newlines are acceptable password characters unfortunately. You could use emacs, "printf <password> > <password file>", or "tr -d '\n' < <password file> > <new password file>"  instead.

hi,all:
  forgive my poor English~
  I find a problem about the parameter password-file。When i create a password-file using Vi editor,then vi will put a '\n' in the end of the line(eol)。
  This character '\n' will lead failure。You should modify as blow i think。wating for your reply,thank you。
