       openssl passwd [-crypt] [-1] [-apr1] [-salt string] [-in file] [-stdin]
       [-quiet] [-table] [password]

       Uses the crypt algorithm (default).  Uses the MD5  based	 BSD  password
       algorithm  1.  Uses the apr1 algorithm (Apache variant of the BSD algo‐
       rithm).	Uses the specified salt.  Reads passwords  from	 file.	 Reads
       passwords from stdin.  Does not output warnings when passwords given at
       the command line are truncated.	Prepends the cleartext password and  a
       TAB character to each password hash in the output list.

       the hash of each password in a list.  The password list is  taken  from
       the  named  file	 for option -infile, from stdin for option -stdin, and
       from the command line.  The  UNIX  standard  algorithm  crypt  and  the
       MD5-based  BSD  password	 algorithm  1  and its Apache variant apr1 are
