A reasonably secure password generator

passwoid generates reasonably secure passwords. That's it; that's all it does.

The passwords generated by passwoid are strings of random characters. Passwords are chosen from the set of all upper-case letters except I and O, all lower-case letters except l, and the digits 2 through 9. 0 and O are not used to avoid confusion with each other when passwords are displayed in sans-serif fonts. I, l, and 1 are not used for the same reason. Passwords are guaranteed to contain at least one upper-case letter, one lower-case letter, and one number.

The default length is 16. The minimum length is 3, because a shorter password would not satisfy the requirement to use all three classes of characters. passwoid will create a password of any length of 3 or greater, and guarantees that passwords will not repeat any characters if the requested length is 57 or less.
