It seems that I missed the option to use various providers (different
than file) with DIGEST, and it's silly of me, but the main question

There is a lot of functionality and many flags in htpasswd.c.

htdigest.c still doesn't have any of these, even in the TRUNK.
htdigest.c hasn't changed, almost at all, since it was first introduced.

Its only flag is still "-c" (i.e. create the password file), and there
is no optional parameter or flag.

As I wrote in my previous message, for example, the only way to add a
user or change a password from a program and non-interactively, is by
hacking with TIOCNOTTY and then piping the password twice into

How can I use htdigest without the current limitations?
