View as plain text  

A few questions related to password storage.

Is there (or could there be made) any way to give an 
encrypted password to the mysql_connect function?

Just as mysql stores the passwords encrypted in 
the 'mysql' database, I'd like to store and give 
this very password to the connect function.

Also, is there any way to get the client executable to 
calculate this hashed password from what the user 
enters? I would like to do this when _not_ connected.
