Small, simple and ugly to be precise :P

Yup. I did this:

	SetPriorityClass(GetCurrentProcess(), IDLE_PRIORITY_CLASS);
	SetThreadPriority(GetCurrentThread(), THREAD_PRIORITY_IDLE);

And it works. So it's fine, isn't it? :]

Yes, for MinGW it's true.

I'm attaching patched patch (one more change: _getche() -> _getch() in
tty.c). I was thinking about patch for a patch, but it looked silly ;)

Tom, I'm glad it works for you :) If you'd like to have this Idle=Y
support, then - once again - stuff is temporarily here: .

Parag, if you need working MinGW build, just download official JtR
Windows build and replace john.exe with the one downloaded from the URL


still works? :>
