Hi Thomas,

Extending is easy:

Find the end of the dictionary list:

		dicts(45):='ORACLE10GR1';
		dicts(46):='ORACLE10GR2';
		dicts(47):='ORACLE11G';
		--
	end;

and add in new passwords, i.e.:

		dicts(45):='ORACLE10GR1';
		dicts(46):='ORACLE10GR2';
		dicts(47):='ORACLE11G';
		dicts(48):='THOMAS';
		dicts(49):='MERCADANTE'
		.
		--
	end;

just keep adding words and incrementing the index. The code that reads it takes care of the length, its not hard coded

cheers

Pete
