Program Description

Inspired by a recent 'challenge thread' posted at TheSwamp CAD forum, this novelty program will generate a pseudo-random password string based on the parameters specified.

The random password generation engine at the core of the program utilises my set of Random Number Functions to generate a pseudo-random string of a given length from a supplied character set.

Upon issuing the command syntax password at the AutoCAD command-line, the user is presented with a dialog interface providing several options to control the length & content of the password to be generated.

The user may specify a password length of between 1 and 99 characters, control whether symbols, numbers, lower-case and/or upper-case characters are permitted in the password, and also whether visually similar characters (such as 1,l,I,O,0) should be excluded.

The pseudo-random password string generated by the program following the user pressing the 'Generate Password' button may be subsequently copied to the clipboard by pressing the 'Copy' button.

Finally, the user may exit the program at any time by pressing (you guessed it!) the aptly named 'Exit' button.
