Description

17 years ago
The -p option is listed twice in the smime usage message:

usage: smime [options]
 options:
 -S nick             generate signed message, use certificate named "nick"
  -p passwd          use "passwd" as security module password
 -E rec1[,rec2...]   generate encrypted message for recipients
 -D                  decode a S/MIME message
  -p passwd          use "passwd" as security module password
                     (required for decrypting only)
 -C pathname         set pathname of "cmsutil"
 -d directory        set directory containing certificate db
                     (default: ~/.netscape)

One of them should be deleted.  Also we should take the opportunity to
align '-p passwd ...' on the left with the other options.

Please wait until Sonja has tagged NSS 3.3.2 Beta 1 to check in
the fix.

Wan-Teh,

It was specifically requested by Antonio that I document the -p separately for
the signing and encrypting functions in a previous bug.

Ah, I see.  So the -p options are indented intentionally
to show they can only be used in conjunction with the
-S and -D options.  This was not obvious to me at first :-)

Marked the bug invalid.
