15 If you want to just install npm, but leave your man folder untouched,
16 you can try this instead:
17
18 node install-npm.js
19
20 If you'd prefer to just symlink in the current code so you can hack
21 on it, then you can do this to create a symlink:
22
23 ./cli.js link .
24
25 Any of these will use npm to install itself, like
26 [Ouroboros](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouroboros).

28 ## A note about password security

30 In order to publish your packages, you must have your auth info
31 saved into your .npmrc file. If Cipher and Decipher are supported
32 in the "crypto" module, then npm will use them. However, as of
33 node 0.1.92, these functions aren't integrated yet.
34
35 You can get around this by doing:
36
37 npm install http://github.com/waveto/node-crypto/tarball/v0.0.5
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
