Random password generator with PHP


function generate_password($length='')
{
$str='abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ-_?/:(){}[]0123456789';
$max=strlen($str);
$length=@round($length);
if(empty($length)){$length=rand(8,12);}
$password='';
for($i=0; $i<$length; $i++){$password.=$str{rand(0,$max-1)};}
return $password;
}

In the above code the PHP function generate_password() takes one optional argument, the length of the password. If you do not specify the length then this function will return a random password of length from eight to twelve characters. PHP variavle $str hold the characters to be used to generate password. You can edit this string according to your need.
