Description 林博仁(Buo-ren, Lin) 2020-05-28 07:08:04 UTC
Comparing to `htpasswd`, it is currently difficult to add a large quantity of users in a script using the `htdigest` program, even with the `expect`[1] utility.

`htdigest` should support options like `htpasswd`'s `-i` in order to solve this issue.
