Summary0002920: Command-line mkpasswd for Win32.
DescriptionI noticed that it's not possible to generate hashed passwords from the command line on win32. I think this should be possible for those people who want to make complete working config files without having to start the ircd with an incomplete config and/or some insecure dummy password just so they can just use /mkpasswd ...

Particularly, I noticed the -P command-line option is #if'd out on Win32. I think it should be possible to use this option for the reason(s) I mentioned above (even if you don't make some spiffy GUI for it).
TagsNo tags attached.

personally I think it is useless and just a waste of code. you can bind your ircd with dummy password to<someport> then make a password and put it into your config file.

1) Actually, it's a waste of code to keep it disabled. The simplest solution is remove the #ifndef _WIN32 / #endif around the case 'P': in main() (though this would probably require compiling unreal as a console application and adding a FreeConsole call somewhere).
2) As I said, some people want to have a complete and proper config file before they boot the ircd (maybe they're lazy, or paranoid, or other reason).
