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

DESCRIPTION
       PW-Inspector reads passwords in and prints those	 which	meet  the  re-
       quirements.   The return	code is	the number of valid passwords found, 0

       file to the pw requirements of the target.  Usage only allowed for  le-
       gal purposes.
