+.B pass
+] [
+]... [
+.B pass
+is a very simple password store that keeps passwords inside
+.BR gpg (1)
+encrypted files inside a simple directory tree residing at
+.IR $HOME/.password-store .
+.B pass
+utility provides a series of commands for manipulating the password store,
+allowing the user to add, remove, edit, synchronize, generate, and manipulate
+If no COMMAND is specified, COMMAND defaults to either
+.B show
+.BR ls ,
+depending on the type of specifier in ARGS. Otherwise COMMAND must be one of
+the valid commands listed below.
+Several of the commands below rely on or provide additional functionality if
+the password store directory is also a git repository. If the password store
+directory is a git repository, all password store modification commands will
+cause a corresponding git commit.
+The \fBinit\fP command must be run before other commands in order to initialize
+the password store with the correct gpg key id.
+\fBinit\fP \fIgpg-id\fP
+Initialize new password storage and use
+.I gpg-id
+for encryption. This command must be run first before a password store can be
+\fBls\fP \fIsubfolder\fP
+List names of passwords inside the tree at
+.I subfolder
+by using the
+.BR tree (1)
+program. This command is alternatively named \fBlist\fP.
+\fBshow\fP [ \fI--clip\fP, \fI-c\fP ] \fIpass-name\fP
+Decrypt and print a password named \fIpass-name\fP. If \fI--clip\fP or \fI-c\fP
+is specified, do not print the password but instead copy it to the clipboard
+.BR xclip (1)
+and then restore the clipboard after 45 seconds.
+\fBinsert\fP [ \fI--multiline\fP, \fI-m\fP ] \fIpass-name\fP
+Insert a new password into the password store called \fIpass-name\fP. This will
+read the new password from standard in. If \fI--multiline\fP or \fI-m\fP is
+specified, lines will be read until EOF or Ctrl+D is reached. Otherwise, only
+a single line from standard in is read.
+\fBgenerate\fP [ \fI--no-symbols\fP, \fI-n\fP ] [ \fI--clip\fP, \fI-c\fP ] \fIpass-name pass-length\fP
+Generate a new password using
+.BR pwgen (1)
+of length \fIpass-length\fP and insert into \fIpass-name\fP. If \fI--no-symbols\fP or \fI-n\fP
+is specified, do not use any non-alphanumeric characters in the generated password.
+If \fI--clip\fP or \fI-c\fP is specified, do not print the password but instead copy
+it to the clipboard using
+.BR xclip (1)
+and then restore the clipboard after 45 seconds.
+\fBrm\fP \fIpass-name\fP
+Remove the password named \fIpass-name\fP from the password store. This command is
+alternatively named \fBremove\fP.
+If the password store is a git repository, push the latest changes using
+.BR git-push (1).
+If the password store is a git repository, pull the latest changes using
+.BR git-pull (1).
+\fBgit\fP \fIgit-command-args\fP...
+If the password store is a git repository, pass \fIgit-command-args\fP as arguments to
+.BR git (1)
+using the password store as the git repository.
+Show usage message.
+The password storage directory.
+Contains the gpg key identification used for encryption and decryption. This should
+be set using the \fBinit\fP command.
