in reply to A reasonable temporary password generator?

Next time search also on CPAN :) If you search password on CPAN, you will get the following modules:

  1. Crypt::GeneratePassword: generate secure random pronounceable passwords
  2. Data::Password: Perl extension for assesing password quality

These modules will give what you need and let you follow merlyn's suggestions. For example:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Crypt::GeneratePassword; use Data::Password qw(:all); my $password = Crypt::GeneratePassword::word(8, 8); $DICTIONARY = 4; $GROUPS = 1; $FOLLOWING_KEYBOARD = 1; print "password $password "; if (my $check = IsBadPassword($password)) { print "not good, because $check\n"; } else { print "is good\n"; }

Ciao, Valerio

[Corion]: Meh. I get the feeling I should post a call-to-action for people to test their modules with the upcoming 5.26 (or 5.25.latest), as it seems that the smoke testers don't really weed out modules that fail without . in @INC
[Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
[Corion]: (this post on nntp.perl.org / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
