What Others Think

What about using pwgen for this? pwgen 8 10 produces 10 randomly generated passwords - each 8 chars long. If you prefer to have one password per line, just add -1 pwgen 8 10 -1

"Pronunciable" in which language? :)

Yeah I've checked out apg but I always end up using pwgen just because it seems to be more widely available as a preinstalled or prepackaged tool on various platforms.

Oh well, they're kind of pronounceable in spanish... haha... No preinstalled pwgen in fedora!
