Hello,

Just for fun, you can put the possibility of its own chain and include or exclude duplicates
I allowed a different approach, not recursive, but with "false small recursive"

this would :
// GeneratePW ( Chaine ; Digit ; Option ; Dupli ) // Max Digit = 404
//-------------
Let ([

$Chaine = Case ( IsEmpty ( Chaine ) ;
Substitute (
"[-]" & Filter ( Option ; "lusn" ) ;
[ "[-]" ; Case ( IsEmpty ( Option ) ; "lusn" ; "" ) ] ; [ "l" ; "[l]" ] ; [ "u" ; "[u]" ] ; ["s" ; "[s]" ] ; ["n" ; "[n]" ] ;
[ "[l]" ; "abcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwxyz" ] ; [ "[u]" ; "ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRTUVWXYZ" ] ; [ "[s]" ; "~!@#$%^&*()-<>" ] ; [ "[n]" ; "2346789" ] ) ; Chaine ) ;

Calc = "Let ( $n = Int ( Random * Length ( $Chaine ) ) + 1 ; Middle ( $Chaine ; $n ; 1 ) ) &" ;
NoDupli = Case ( Dupli = 0 ; "Let ( $Chaine = Replace ( $Chaine ; $n ; 1 ; """" ) ; """" ) &" )

] ;
Evaluate ( Substitute ( ( 10 ^ Digit ) - 1 ; 9 ; Calc & NoDupli ) & """""" )
)
//--------

for example with :
Chaine = "" ; // Empty or No
Option = "lusn" ; // Empty or char l u n s only
Digit = "10" ; // Length PW
Dupli = 1 // 1 for duplicate char or 0 for no duplicate char (Empty = Duplicate ok )
