How to generate your own password list using crunch

Open the terminal and type in crunch 5 5 12345 -o password.txt

where the first 5 is the minimum about of digits and the second 5 is the maximum about of digits in a password. 

You can be more creative and put something like 8 8 and the password will be 8 characters instead of 5

12345 is telling crunch to use only the digit from 1 to 5

for this one, you can put letters instead of numbers. For example, it could be abcde instead of 12345

-o is to put the words generated by crunch into a text file
