passkit-0.1, © Tony Howat [23 Jan 2004]

Syntax : pgen
         cryptpass <password>

passkit consists of two simple tools.
1) pgen generates a random password, using the UNIX dictionary to
   source a vaguely English (and hence hopefully memorable) sequence
   of letters followed by two digits - i.e. reverer79, masonis63 etc.
2) pcrypt is a simple interface to the UNIX crypt function, which
   takes a password and puts it through crypt ready to be passed to
The two programs are supplied as straight C source with a makefile
and should compile fine on most unicies. The one issue between
platforms is the location of the dictionary. The default is
"/usr/share/dict/words" which is correct for RedHat. Just alter the
string in pgen.c to the location of your dictionary before building.
Linux x86 binaries are included.
