Even this large bump cannot solve all the problems of RAR password cracker. drar (something similar to unssh tool) can currently generate *very lengthy (megabytes)* lines. So, for such cases I am forced to rely on my original hack of passing the filename from drar and then processing the actual file in drar_fmt.c. The code will look better this time compared to first patch using this hack :-).

Thanks Solar and magnum. At some point I will get back to working on ssh patch and will take care of these issues. Yesterday, I managed to get "rar -p" mode somewhat working. More on this later. -- Cheers, Dhiru
