Wouldn't "ckpasswd -s" be what you are looking for?

It is one of the most complicated page indeed!
Which part of the EXAMPLES section at the end of the man page would you like to emphasize more?
"ckpasswd -s" is notably in 2 examples, but maybe the description is not clear enough?
I would be happy to take into account your suggestions.
