    password script puzzle!!


    Hi Everyone!

    I want to write a script that can be used to test the suitability of user passwords. The script should suggest (based on the initial user password suggestion given by the user) a suitable alternative required.

    I just dont know how to tackle it. I dont want it to be huge, just enough to do the job.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    There is a C programming libary called "cracklib" which is able to do exactly that, but you would need to know a little C to write a stub program to read a password and pass it to the libary.

    Is that a feasable option?
