NAME
       pw-inspector - A tool to reduce the password list

SYNOPSIS
       pw-inspector [-i FILE] [-o FILE] [-m MINLEN] [-M MAXLEN] [-c MINSETS] -l
       -u -n -p -s

DESCRIPTION
       PW-Inspector reads passwords in and prints those which meet the
       requirements.  The return code is the number of valid passwords found, 0
       if none was found.  Use for security: check passwords, if 0 is returned,
       reject password choice.  Use for hacking: trim your dictionary file to
       the pw requirements of the target.  Usage only allowed for legal
       purposes.
