Date: Wed, 25 May 2011 12:28:27 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: john-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: external mode VM speedup Hi, I committed some changes to the external mode virtual machine, which speed it up a little bit - in my testing, by 5% to 10% for AppendLuhn, Keyboard, Strip. Already-fast external modes don't benefit from this much or at all; this includes KnownForce and especially DumbForce. In case anyone wants to help test this (before it becomes part of the next release), use this patch and provide your feedback: http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/john/john/src/compiler.c.diff?r1=1.4;r2=1.8 There's more room for improvement, but I did not want to go for invasive changes yet. I think we have other priorities now, and this was already a little bit of a distraction (sorry!) Thanks, Alexander
