addrgen - minimal Bitcoin address generator in Python
This script generates a single Bitcoin address using the compressed public key format and prints it with its private key.
Mac OS X
For some reason, the script segfaults on OS X unless it's run in in 32-bit mode. Instead, those on OS X should run:
Generating other types of addresses
Supply the version number for your desired address with the --otherversion switch. (supported by pywallet at least)
python addrgen.py --otherversion=48
If you wish to generate addresses based on a passphrase, a given private key, or some other option look at the commented lines in the test() function.
