thank you. I would add a limit, Jethro_, but most people are going to actually follow the rules given. This isn't something the avarage user is going to need, so I figured the ones that are going to use it are going to be smart enough to not do something like that. :P

Thanks guys for the accolades, by the way.

Oh. just thought of a fix for you, jethro_. instead of == y for the condition, i'll replace it with != n

Anyways Savage_CL, I forgot to mention nice job on your snippet. It shows that you are thinking of different ways to go about it.

Jethro_, pretty sure that's caused by the fact that %temp only increases in the while loop if one of the conditionals is met.

I was fiddling around with the code and entered this:> /newpass 5 abakjsdfh akjsdfh jkasdfhand I got an endless loop 'til I broke it up. lol

Well, don't get me wrong. You could redo any script that's been done before over and over with your "colorful imagination," it'd still be great to think up something new, not generic...so that your code won't appear dull and ordinary.

So true Jethro_ it has been done many times before. It was not too long ago that a few different people posted random pass gens one after the other. Most msl snippets have been done many times over an that is a good thing. You have to love the different takes people have on the same idea. hmm I wonder who scored this a 10 =/ not that i am saying it is a bad snippet, but someone is way too giving to score this a 10. Maybe a 5 or a 6

I thought this kind of script had been done before, and you could do this with regsubex in one line...
