Here is a document including the source


There are many sources all the same md5sum in the internet.

e.g. from Fossies the fresh open source software archive.


The old (14.1) apg.SlackBuild works on my 32 bit Slackware Current.

Can we trust NIST? I remember was an issue with tuned random number
generators. But you can always add a SheBang to the suggested password.
I know me own internal password generator depends on blood pressure and
sugar and is far less trustworthy.

If the maintainer has gone away I am willing to toke it.
