In effect I published the file pgpass.conf and I added the following line:
However. I continued my instruction and follows without working to me.    Exists the way to invoke psql that is not of interactive way so that It alters password of a user with no need to be in psql?
With the commando psql - S “ALTER USER…” it continues saying to me that that data base does not exist, still modified the file pgpass.conf.  If you know some way in that this can be done, would be thankful to you immensely.

Sure.  It's asking for the password of the user who will connect to the
database and issue the SQL command.  There are several ways to avoid
this; the simplest is to create an appropiate .pgpass file (pgpass.conf
in Windows).  The exact location is something like %APPDATA%/postgresql,
but better look it up in the documentation.
