This program is designed to make it easy to reconstruct difficult
passwords when they are needed while limiting the risk of attack.
The user of this program inputs a self-defined transformation of a web site
URL and obtains the password and user name hint for that web site.
You must, however, be able to remember this password id, or the password
is lost forever.

New in 1.1 - January 2014
* a --status option will display the status of a password id.
  This will only tell you if there are special password attributes.

* passwords can require two characters from one class.  (Ick.)
  This can now be specified for upper case letters, lower case
  letters, digits and special characters (punctuation).
  This is not supported for either "two of any alpha" or "two of
  any alphanumeric".

I used a script that put it into a subdirectory:
