Password File Generator

Password File Generator does exactly as it says on the tin - it generates passwords! This is a command line utility that will generate passwords based on standard password templates, just specify the start length (minimum 1 char), the end length (max 20 chars) and the complexity of the passwords you require and PassFileGen will do the rest! This is useful if you require a password generation program in order to allocate random passwords to users.

PassFileGen is also very useful if you want to fill up a hard disk with pseudo random characters, guaranteed you'll run out of hard disk space before PassFileGen runs out of combinations if on the most complex settings with longish passwords. PassFileGen even has a switch which will tell you the size of the file that will be generated based on the options you've selected!

TXTChange is a command line tool that will do a case sensitive / insensitive search for and replace, if required, any instances of a string in a text based file. This is especially useful if there are .ini or .cfg files to change on multiple PCs - just add TXTChange into the login script with the appropriate parameters and the relevant files will be changed on the users' machines. TXTChange also supports UNICODE strings.

TXTChange also has options to search for words immediately before or after the specified string. Another very useful function of TXTChange is the ability to search for specific sequences of bytes in a non-text file and replace these bytes. Variable length changes are not supported in this scenario.
