in thread Crypt::GeneratePassword with no special characters

Yes, it looks like you are mis-interpreting.

If $set is given, it must be an array ref of characters to use

so this argument contains the list of chars to use, as opposed to not using. Perhaps you want:

$Password=chars(5,8,\('a'..'z'));
which should create a password between 5 and 8 chars in length, containing only lowercase chars from 'a' to 'z'.
Hope this helps

    bm,

    Thank you! You were right. I was trying to the use the $characters restrict function. However, the set option was much more applicable.

    Thanks Again,
    Mark
