PWMan password manager

PWMan is a lightweight commandline based password manager.

The password database is encrypted with AES-256. Access is granted via PBKDF2/SHA-256 hashed master password.

The program offers a shell-ideomatic commandline prompt with TAB-completion. So fast navigation though the database is possible. A built-in help system guides the user through the interactive interface. Simply type 'help' or a question mark at the command prompt to get help.
