How to generate password

Posted 02-21-2009 at 08:56 AM by ErV

Generating password is simple:

password8.sh:
[code]
#!/bin/sh
cat /dev/urandom| tr -dc '0-9a-zA-Z!@#$%^&*_+-'|head -c 8;echo
[/code]
This script generates 8 characters long password.
To change number of characters, replace 8 with other number.
'0-9a-zA-Z!@#$%^&*_+-' defines character set used in password. If you need another charset, change this string to suit your needs.
