Comment Here is a bash function I use (Score 1) 637

Stick this in your $HOME/.bashrc

genpasswd() {
     tr -dc '[:graph:]' < /dev/urandom | head -c ${1:-16};     echo;
}

Then you can just generate a password by calling "genpasswd". If you don't like the default length of 16 you can give a different length as a parameter.

Here's an example of the output:

$ for i in {1..20}; do genpasswd 30; done
