Makepasswd generates (pseudo-)random passwords of a desired length. It is able to generate its crypted equivalent. Newest versions can be found at: https://github.com/khorben/makepasswd This program needs OpenSSL to build (with development headers and libraries). Just run "make install" and it should build and install to /usr/local. To install to alternate locations, override the default as follows: $ make PREFIX=/path/to/your/prefix install The DESTDIR variable is also supported for package maintainers. It was tested with both the clang and GCC compilers, as well as with BSD and GNU make. Please note however that the program now uses crypt(3), which is often available from the libc directly. It tries to find it and link with the libcrypt library by default; if this fails, try: $ make LDFLAGS= install Feel free to send comments, suggestions to the author (see the AUTHORS file).
