..  randstring([rng,] len=8)

Create a random ASCII string of length ``len``, consisting of upper- and
lower-case letters and the digits 0-9. The optional ``rng`` argument
specifies a random number generator, see :ref:`Random Numbers <random-numbers>`.


The randstring function in Julia generates a random ASCII string of a specified length. It consists of upper- and lower-case letters and the digits 0-9. The function also accepts an optional random number generator argument.

julia> randstring(10)

julia> randstring(5)

julia> randstring(12)

In the above examples, randstring generates random strings of lengths 10, 5, and 12, respectively.

You can also provide a random number generator as an optional argument:

julia> rng = Random.MersenneTwister(1234);  # Create a specific random number generator
julia> randstring(rng, 8)

julia> randstring(rng, 6)

julia> randstring(rng, 9)

In this example, the rng argument is passed to randstring to use a specific random number generator (MersenneTwister in this case).

Please note that the exact output of randstring will vary each time you run it due to its random nature.
