Im fairly new to PHP so please bear with me. I have a webpage upon which i have a form with a field to allow a user to enter a password which they want to make for their account. I wanted to check the password to ensure it is of a reasonable standard.

After searching the web i cam across this website
Which seems to be the main recommendation from the website for a basic password strength checker.

I downloaded the .TGZ package from the above website but cant figure out how to install it and cant seem to find any clear instructions anywhere.

Can anyone help me by telling me where I can find instructions or by giving me the instructions so I can use it.

In addition im using PHP 5, and although some instructions talk of DLL, in the file i downloaded I can find none.

Thanks for help in advance.
