I'm a software developer, I'm currently working on Windows CE in the automotive infotainment field. I'm unsatisfied of my company and generally of software industry in Italy. I would like to emigrate to the programmer's paradise.

comment How common is meta-programming?
@SK-logic: I mean new code being generated on demand at runtime. Templates are processed by the compiler, you can see them as a powerful kind of precompiler macro.

@JoachimSauer: if you have an n big enough, and you don't disclose it to the users, you will probably prevent users to even try choosing a sequence.

@KevinVermeer: there's no real definition of 'minimal change', I guess... Ideally the new password should be totally unrelated to all the previous passwords...

Well this is certainly a clever workaround if you don't have a requirement of testing against n previous passwords, however the suggestion of generating the alternatives just in time is better. But generating alternatives of both passwords is even better!

So, if the user enters Password6 I should detect the numerical part, and try for example Password4, Password5, Password7, and so on. Is that correct?
