       password-gorilla — a password manager


       The Password Gorilla helps you manage your logins. It stores all your
       user names and passwords, along with login information and other notes,
       in a securely encrypted file. A single "master password" is used to
       protect the file. This way, you only need to remember the single master
       password, instead of the many logins that you use.

       If you want to log in to a service or Web site, the Password Gorilla
       copies your user name and password to the clipboard, so that you can
       easily paste it into your Web browser or other application. Because the
       password does not appear on the screen, Password Gorilla is safe to use
       in the presence of others.

       The convenience of Password Gorilla allows you to choose different,
       non-intuitive passwords for each service. An integrated random password
       generator can provide one-time passwords, tunable to various services'

       The program creates a configuration file .gorillarc in the
       homedirectory of the user.
