An AccountManager driver for passwd command found on Unix-like systems using the Ruby PTY implementation.

WARNING: The Ruby PTY module is unreliable or unavailable on most platforms. It may hang indefinitely or report incorrect results. Every attempt has been made to work around these problems, but this is a low-level problem. You are strongly encouraged to install the expect program, which works flawlessly. Once the expect program is installed, passwords will be changed using the AccountManager::PasswdExpect driver, which works properly.
