Hi magnum, Just a thought - one of the items on the wish list is -support for arbitrary characters in rules pp, eg. 0xBF or \xBF To me, this looks like an example for an "arbitrary" 1 byte character (meaning of the character depends on code page/encoding). Should we consider arbitrary unicode characters instead? I didn't dare tinkering with your whish list entries, that's why I thought to mention this on john-dev. May be the most useful or easiest to implement option depends on the use case. In external modes, you can already use arbitrary characters, at least arbitrary 1 byte characters. For incremental mode, the extension to arbitrary 1 byte characters (or, to the subset of those non-ascii characters that are printable in certain encodings) might be useful, depending on the "target language", even if extending the character set has other drawbacks. Regards, Frank
