Hi marcus, the original motivation for the separate file was to avoid the use of floats, which, IIRC, Werner didn't want, because floats don't belong in a system tool. Nevertheless, your approach of avoiding a square root all together solves the problem quite nicely.

In T2905#99112, @wltjr wrote:

Let me clarify, what all are doing now to make the progress bar move is the following

if(percent<0)
    percent = -percent;

That inverts the value if below zero a negative with 2 negatives become positive. That ends up moving it 10% per 1 character entered. That is the code mine does not have. I have tested it with that code and it functions like all others.

Once the password algorithm is corrected. That if condition should not be hit long as the returned value is greater than 0. The value, in theory will always be above 0. HOWEVER, if it is below zero, legitimately from what ever is checking the "quality" of the passphrase. Then this will be a bug in all. Since it will revert to old behavior, every wrong character entered that causes a negative value to be returned, will hit that condition and move by 10% per 1 character.

That means at best the code becomes useless code for a condition never hit. But at worst it cause the same behavior as seen now even with a new algorithm, a bug. If something returns negative values for bad entries.

Thus I rather leave out code that would become obsolete/useless, or potentially cause the same behavior with a corrected algorithm. Which will happen now for all the other interfaces.

T2103 is the right place to discuss the password quality algorithm, not here.

Sure but that issue is seeming to cause issues for this contribution.

If you want to not implement the password quality indicator for the EFL pinentry (which seems like a reasonable choice to me) then it would be in line with pinentry-curses, which also doesn't implement it, afaict.

It is currently implemented and I do not have a problem leaving it as is. The question then becomes a matter of its functionality. Do I leave as is, for when the password quality algorithm is fixed? Or should I make it like the others?

It is really up to you all. I am just trying to get this accepted. If you want the EFL version without I can remove. If it is to remain.

No, you should not adjust what you are getting. My point is only that the password quality bar may not only be useless, it may, in fact, be dangerous.

So currently the efl bar always displays 0%. It must either be fixed (i.e. display the same as the gtk one), or be removed. I don't care either way, but it cannot be broken like it is now.
