I was a bit bored and decided to write a small app that generates random passwords.

I wanted to see how long it would take for the password generator to produce an impossible string, so I ran it for several days. The results were surprising!

The program is available on GitHub: https://github.com/kristoferb/password-generator-test . It’s written in C++11 using Qt5 and runs on Linux (and probably Windows too). You can run it from the command line with ./password_generator or by double clicking on the executable file if you have installed Qt Creator as well as qmake
