not that I can see (1st and 2nd Eds). The cookbook only contains zero, 
one or two longer programs per chapter.

Interestingly, I've been pretty unsuccessful googling for password 
strength checkers that I could adapt for this usage. I would have 
thought that there were lots of implementations in all sorts of 
languages. Perhaps its not an "interesting" enough problem.


ps would anyone be interesting in "auditing" my script? I have the bulk 
of it done minus the strength checking.
