API Examples

You can use elocrypt to generate words in any Haskell code, so long as you have installed elocrypt. Generate a word by using Elocrypt.Password.generate

import Data.Elocrypt
...
-- Generate a word of length 10
fooGen :: IO String
fooGen = newPassword 10 `liftM` getStdGen

Alternatively, you can use Elocrypt.Password.mkPassword if you want to complete control of the random monad

import Data.Elocrypt
import Control.Monad.Random
...
-- Generate a word of length 10
fooGen' :: IO String
fooGen' = evalRand (mkPassword 10) `liftM` getStdGen
