What size wire do I need for a 30 amp generator?

Note Most input boxes have a container of 30 amps, which would allow connection to a generator that provides 30 amps. Although its generator provides less than 30 amps, security and NEC codes always require the use of a 10 AWG wire or a larger wire.
