I manage a small web site for a membership organization and we want to
create a members-only area. We want to control access using member names
as user IDs and membership numbers as passwords. Easy so far.
I have no problem using the .htaccess/.htpasswd mechanism because I've
done it before. Since we have 400+ members, what I don't want to do is
to sit and manually input each ID and password for encryption. Does
anyone have a script or utility that will input a text file containing
all 400+ ID/password combos (one per line) and output a file containing
the 400+ encrypted passwords (preferably in the .htpasswd format).
As a "retired" programmer, I can generally understand the cgi scripts I
use but I'm no perl programmer so I really need something ready-to-go.
