Password Guesser

This is a program that asks you for your password, then keeps guessing until it finds your password.

What is it supposed to do if it knows your password already?
Also, it takes wayyy too long to try.

This repl, as I understand it, was created in order to use the password selection code if the password itself is unknown. But I can’t think of a single legal example of its use.

To speed up the selection of a password, I suggest that before sorting through random characters, sort through combinations of different words and numbers in ascending order.

@SnakeyKing if you haven’t already you can store a bunch of common passwords in a dictionary and make your code check those first before it brute forces the rest.
