Problem this snippet solves:

These procs generate a random string of letters, numbers, or both. Code Source


############################################################

# Note: the RNG used by TCL rand() is not in any way cryptographically secure #

############################################################

How to use this snippet:


Code :

# iRule proc Source - Define the proc named html_encode in a separate iRule named library:

rule library {
proc randomNumberGenerator {length {chars "0123456789"}} {
  set range [expr {[string length $chars]-1}]
  set txt ""
  for {set i 0} {$i < $length} {incr i} {
    set pos [expr {int(rand()*$range)}]
    append txt [string range $chars $pos $pos]
  }
  return $txt
}
proc randomLetterGenerator {length {chars "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"}} {
  set range [expr {[string length $chars]-1}]
  set txt ""
  for {set i 0} {$i < $length} {incr i} {
    set pos [expr {int(rand()*$range)}]
    append txt [string range $chars $pos $pos]
  }
  return $txt
}
proc randomNumberLetterGenerator {length {chars "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"}} {
  set range [expr {[string length $chars]-1}]
  set txt ""
  for {set i 0} {$i < $length} {incr i} {
    set pos [expr {int(rand()*$range)}]
    append txt [string range $chars $pos $pos]
  }
  return $txt
}
}

# Call the procedure from another iRule using the name of the iRule where the proc is defined as the namespace and then the name of the procedure (library::html_encode):

# iRule that calls the string generating proc:
when CLIENT_ACCEPTED {
  set x [call library::randomNumberGenerator 10]
  set y [call library::randomLetterGenerator 10]
  set z [call library::randomNumberLetterGenerator 10]
  log local0. "Random Strings: $x / $y / $z"
}
# log output: Random Strings: 8648734163 / vmQSXmqgxB / Xx7mKZ7733
