Creating standalone passwords in /etc/passwd format

Hi there,

I am using pserver for authentication on CVS. Rather than use the same
passwords as in /etc/passwd, I'd rather create different ones for
users. How would I output a password to, for example, a text file in
the same format as that of /etc/passwd.

i.e: # xxx mynewpassword > encrypted_password.txt
