ENVIRONMENT
       PWSAFE_DATABASE
	      Default database file. If	this is	a relative path	it is  assumed
	      to  be  relative to $HOME. Defaults to ".pwsafe.dat". Overridden
	      by -f.

       PWSAFE_DEFAULT_USER
	      Default user. Defaults to	$USER or $LOGNAME.

       PWSAFE_IGNORE
	      Overrides	built-in --ignore list.	--ignore overrides. Format  is
	      a	list of	--ignore arguments, seperated by colons	(':').

       HOME   Used  to locate the default database "~/.pwsafe.dat" and default
	      RANDFILE "~/.rnd".

       RANDFILE
	      Used to locate the random	number generator  entropy  pool	 file.
	      Defaults to "$HOME/.rnd".

FILES
       ~/.pwsafe.dat
	      The password database.

       ~/.pwsafe.dat~
	      Backup of	database.

       ~/.rnd Random number generator's	entropy	pool.

WARNINGS
       Use a good password for your database.

       Don't use pwsafe	over telnet or from untrusted terminals.

       To seed RANDFILE	decently, do something like
	  md5sum /var/log/* >~/.rnd

EXAMPLES
       For those who can't read	the rest of this file:

       Create $HOME/.pwsafe.dat.

	      pwsafe --createdb

       Add an entry named 'test'.

	      pwsafe -a	test

       Copy  username  and password of 'test' to console or X clipboard	& pri-
       mary selection.

	      pwsafe -up test

       Upgrade a version passwordsafe version 1.7 database to version 2.0  (we
       do this by merging it with itself, but specifying version 2 output)

	      pwsafe --mergedb $HOME/.pwsafe.dat --dbversion 2
