howtos:password_generator

Put this little script into you ~/.bashrc and you can run it from anywhere:

genpasswd() {
	local l=$1
       	[ "$l" == "" ] && l=20
      	tr -dc A-Za-z0-9_ < /dev/urandom | head -c ${l} | xargs
}

It takes one parameter which says how long a password you want:

tdd@s10e-tdd:~$ genpasswd 10

tdd@s10e-tdd:~$
