  • (but have not tried to prove) that using Koremutake is going to lead to it being easier to brute force a password list down the line.
    • Text::Password::Pronounceable wins, simply because I can find it on CPAN by searching for Password via module name. I normally don't do a Search All.
  • And incidentally, "koremutake" is easier to pronounce than "pronounceable".
    • Core-mu-take? Or Co-ray-mu-ta-ki? I don't have to think about "pronounceable". :)
  • Jynegra sounds like a multinational corporation that does something you're not quite sure about. "Jynegra: At the forefront of progress."


  • to win is to not play.
  • 10 out of 10 are pronouncable with String::Koremutake 8 out of 10 are pronouncable with Text::Password::Pronounceable
  • The winner is the unix apg (auto password generate) command, simply because it tells you how to pronounce your passwords:

    pjf@teddybear:~$ apg -n10 -m6 -x10 -t
    dyknip (dy-knip)
    FereOw (Fe-re-Ow)
    otAlfig^ (ot-Alf-ig-CIRCUMFLEX)
    tasEms (tas-Ems)
    AtIfRith9 (At-If-Rith-NINE)
    ucGuj+ (uc-Guj-PLUS_SIGN)
    igsyehod0 (igs-ye-hod-ZERO)
    cogwig_ (cog-wig-UNDERSCORE)
    seajaf (seaj-af)
    shoHiujca (sho-Hi-uj-ca)

    If any of the modules provides pronunciation tips (as does apg), then it wins. Otherwise, T::P::Pronounceable

  • In scripts like these it really jumps at me what a silly keyword "say" is. In a script that states that a word is pronounceable, I expect that the script is going to try to say it out loud. And that that is what "say" is doing.

    It's not.
  • I notice you've used String:: while clkao used Text::. For a vaguely similar module I used Encode:: [] (and if you go further along the words-and-numbers spectrum you end up, predictably, at Number:: []).

    I have a pipe dream that one day there will be CPAN author round table meetings where similar modules in disparate namespaces will be agreed into consistent groupings. Ah well...

  • I liked your module. And although I'm more a Perl than a Ruby guy, I felt I needed something like this. So... Well, for the love of $DEITY, I cannot find the way to upload the project page [] to RubyForge (and I've done it, for my other projects there!)... But if you are curious and want to look at how I reimplemented what I saw from you, just clone the Git repository:
    git clone git://
    Thanks for a neat idea!
