4 Description
5 -----------
7 The pwm utility is a password manager which stores passwords and associated
8 metadata in an encrypted database protected by a master password. It has a
9 text-based user interface and can be used both interactively and
10 non-interactively. The database uses the PasswordSafe database format
11 version 3 and is thus compatible with other password managers using this
12 format.
14 Build Instructions
15 ------------------
17 pwm requires a POSIX:2004 compatible operating system, it has been tested to
18 work on Linux distributions, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris and
19 Illumos-derived distributions. The following tools and shared libraries are
20 required to build pwm:
22 - GNU make >= 3.81
23 - GNU or BSD install
24 - libtecla >= 1.6.0
25 - libpws >= 1.0.0
27 Rebuilding the man pages additionally requires the xsltproc tool from libxml2.
29 Before building pwm check the commented macros in the Makefile for any
30 macros you may need to override depending on the used toolchain and operating
31 system.
33 By default, all files will be installed under the "/usr/local" directory, a
34 different installation path prefix can be set via the `prefix` macro. In
35 addition, a second path prefix can be specified via the `DESTDIR` macro which
36 will be prepended to any path, incuding the `prefix` macro path prefix. In
37 contrast to `prefix`, the path specified via the `DESTDIR` macro will only be
38 prepended to paths during installation and not be used for constructing
39 internal paths.
41 The following instructions assume that `make` is GNU make, on some platforms
42 it may be installed under a different name or a non-default path. In order to
43 start the build process run `make all`. After a successful build, run `make
44 install` to install the program, any associated data files and the
45 documentation.
47 Previously built binaries, object files, generated data files and
48 documentation can be removed by running `make clean`, any additional,
49 generated files which are not removed by the `clean` target can be removed by
50 running `make clobber`.

58 Bug Reports
59 -----------
61 When sending bug reports, please always mention the exact version of pwm
62 with which the issue occurs as well as the version of the operating system you
63 are using and make sure that you provide sufficient information to reproduce
64 the issue and include any input, output, any error messages.
66 In case of build issues, please also specify the implementations and versions
67 of the tools and shared libraries used to build the program, in particular the
68 compiler.
70 In case of crashes, please generate a stack trace with a suitable debugger
71 such as gdb, lldb, dbx, or debug after a crash has occurred either by
72 examining the resulting core file or by running the program from the debugger
73 and attach it to the bug report. In order to generate a meaningful stack
74 trace the program as well as any dynamically linked libraries need to be built
75 with debugging information, see the documentation of the used compiler for the
76 required compiler flags. If any of the dynamically linked shared libraries do
77 not contain debugging information, please either install debugging information
78 for these libraries using mechanisms provided by your operating system or
79 rebuild the libraries accordingly. Please refer to the documentation of the
80 debugger for detailed instructions on generating backtraces.
