You can simply do : -format=md5_gen(1066) The backward compatible way -for=md5-gen -sub=md5_gen(1066) has been left, but the -sub= is not really needed any more. The one thing I 'like' fom the -subformat is -sub=list That command lists all the md5-gen format's installed on the machine. That is the main reason (along with backward compatibility if people have scripts) that I kept the -subformat= command line switch at all. > By the way, the subformat is a pain to type on the command line, since > it's long and the parens must be escaped in unix shells. the -subformat is not required (the format will deal with it), but the parens still 'are'. I could change that to md5_gen_1066, but that is a 'change'. Would this be problems for not providing backward compatibility? >I thought of hacking it so you could optionally just say --subformat=1066 >(which of course can be shortened to --sub=1066 or even more). I'll look at >it some rainy day unless you beat me to it.
