I want to implement a regisration for programs I make. I would like to make a key-generation - where if one's name was "Bill Smith" the key would be "g6za91v" No matter how big the name or small it is, the key would be 7 char/#s (or any amount)I get the basics but i cant figure out exactly how. That program will be for me when people registor and i give them their code. The thing i also need would be a procedure for regitering where it knows what is valid with what charactor. (case sensitive) I think using ASCII char # then manipulating may work.
