I need to change my root password on daily basis. But the new password should be create from shell script. The input for the new password should be current date. Which means

let we say
the current date is x1, then the password should be x2. (but user should be able to calculate the new password)

is it possible to do it?

Followed, but still see csh welcome in new tab of Terminal in xfce on FreeBSD.
/etc/passwd shows bash. What I’ve missed?

You should then just press [enter] to have csh as a default shell.
