Questions about "passwd"


Hi ALL

As a "root", I can use the comman in RedHat:
echo $usr | passwd --stdin $usr
to chang the passwd of $use as $user.

However, I cannot use this command in Debian.
The error msg is:
passwd: invalid option -- -

I use Debian actually.
What should I do?

Thanks.

This *might* be what you're after. I can't test it, as my debian box went teats up awhile back and I didn't replace it.
