There is already a password generator named "apg" for the command line. http://www.adel.nursat.kz/apg/

It hasn't been updated in about eleven years, but still, one shouldn't name a program the same as another program that has the same purpose.

Pretty nice app! Passphrases build upon random common words are WAY easier to remember (bot NOT less secure than random characters), this makes harder to forget, which usually less people to use weaker passwords.

Higly suggested!
