Unable to find htpasswd command

I'm trying to set up a squid proxy server at my families house so I can proxy in when I need to test things from a different network.

I've installed squid, but I need to get an authentication system set up. All the docs point me to the htpasswd command but I can't get a hold of the binary.

I'm running debian and I've tried `apt-get install htpasswd` to no avail. I've got the libapache-htpasswd-perl package but that doesn't seem to be very usefull.

Does anyone know where I can get this command? I just need my squid server to support a couple of users.

You need the apache2-utils package to get htpasswd
