2. Invoking gnu-pw-mgr

The password id should contain a fairly consistent permutation of the URL you are logging in to. "Fairly" because you may wish to vary your financial institutions differently than your newspaper. e.g. "my/banK$moC" versus "bLog-oRg". And then surround the id with prefixes and suffixes. Separate these with punctuation characters to make dictionary attacks more difficult.

Only the passwords for one password id are ever printed. If the command line contains multiple operands (arguments after the options), then they are assembled into one password id with space characters separating the original operands.

One password is printed for every configured seed value. Seed values are added by specifying just the --tag and --text options. The tag is also printed with each password. The --login-id, --length, --cclass and --specials options are associated with each password id. Password ids are never stored anywhere.

Example usage can be seen in the example section below.
