LOGIN_CHPASS(8)         OpenBSD System Manager's Manual        LOGIN_CHPASS(8)

NAME
     login_chpass - change password authentication type

SYNOPSIS
     login_chpass [-s service] user [class]

DESCRIPTION
     The login_chpass utility is typically called from login(1).  It is func-
     tionally the same as calling the program: ``passwd user''.  This will use
     the login_lchpass(8) utility to change the user's local password.

     Only the login service is supported.  See login.conf(5).  The class argu-
     ment is not used.

SEE ALSO
     login(1), passwd(1), login.conf(5), login_lchpass(8)
