    while x != len(password):
        p = p + str(password[x])
        x += 1    
    print "Password generated.",
    print "Here's your %s character password. Note that there may be spaces: %s" % (len(password), p)

newPass()

I find this tool very usefull for when I change my passwords every 3 months with online acounts and on my computer.
