passh, that is: sshpass -d {anonymous pipe from executing $1 with args from the rest of argv}
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Created by Michał Krzysztof Feiler in September 2019
# Desired usage example:
# ./passh.sh \; ssh user@host \; pass stdout path/of/passfile
# ( this example uses https://github.com/mkf/pass-stdout )
# ( this script aims to serve this example. so far it is a failure. please help. )
