Generates random passwords

PasswdGen is a utility for system administrators who, for security reasons, want to generate random passwords based on their own criteria. passwdGen has many run-time options that allow you to customize the criteria the generated password. 'passwdGen' is designed in a modular way and currently has three main front-ends: a console based front-end (fe-text), a GTK+ based front-end (fe-gtk), and a KDE2 front-end (fe-kde2). The building of each of these can be disabled at runtime using --disable-gtk, --disable-text, and --disable-kde2.
