Hide your password file anywhere
Versions of pine the patch is available for: pine 4.44 pine 4.50 pine 4.51 pine 4.52 pine 4.53
This patch allows you to specify any location for your password file. If Pine has been compiled with PASSFILE support, that usually means that you can store your password in a file, whose name was chosen by the person that compiled pine. That filename is usually called "pine.pwd".
This patch allows you to start Pine with the -passfile switch so that you can specify its location. The location must be a full path. For example:
pine -passfile /full/path/to/pine.pwd
The code for this patch existed in Pine, but it's hidden under some #define statements. This patch moves the code so that the same funcitonality is available for everyone.
Notice that this patch assumes that you already defined a password file.
