Hi Sándor,

You write:

> pass show my_pass

However, from the man page:

"If  no COMMAND is specified, COMMAND defaults to either show or ls, depending on the type of specifier in ARGS."


For my original question, I got help elsewhere and the solution is to include the `-m` option, like so:

$ echo "Hello, world!" | pass insert -m my_pass
$ pass my_pass
Hello, world!
