Of course you could also use something like Crypt::PassGen (Crypt::PassGen - Generate a random password that looks like a real word). The generated passwords aren't perfect, but it usually suits me for non-critical things and the generated passwords are usually quite easy to remember, for the look like real words.

All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.

    Cool, I'll have to play with that a bit. I, of course, allow users to create their own passwords but I use an authorization process that requires them to use the system generated password to initialize their account. I chose passwdgen without too much thought, because it works and I'm familiar with it and needed a quick solution to the cruddy little hacked-up generator I had written from scratch.

    Thanks for the tip!
