Generating Unique Random Alpha-Numeric Non-Sequenced Identifiers
Every once in a while we come across the problem of generating unique identifiers that are also human readable [Bartlett] [Lee]. One may solve this problem in a number of ways. This article discusses some aspects of generating such identifiers via random number generators. The presented approach may be useful if the generated identifiers must not imply sequences. They are also useful if the user wants the ability to edit the generated identifiers.
