During last week I implemented basic support for -format, -subformat options and for mode selection options. I totally redesigned options page. Though it seems I overloaded it a bit so when I would add more options I would split it into 'options' and 'modes'. Now it is split in such two sections but both of them are on one page. However now I would like to go with settings and other stuff because there are a lot of things about design that should be changed, and I think 'changed later' during polish. Currently there are following modes supported: default behaviour (without keys at all), "single crack", wordlist, "incremental" and external modes. Markov is left for future changes. Are that all modes available? I made short descriptions/tips for each mode. I think they should help an user. However they are always visible. I think it would be good to make an ability to disable this through settings. Question: "incremental" mode was called brute-force mode. Now it is call '"Incremental" mode'. Should I keep such name? Or make something like '"Incremental" mode (brute-force)'? Or original name? Or else? HDD on computer used by me last two weeks gives errors. I think/hope it was just overheated because it was hot when I touched it. Fortunately I pushed all my changes yesterday and today I did only emails. So I am happy with git. However I think to do pushes more often. I plan to continue with adding settings. Then I think to add status as part of statistics (for now it would be instead of statistics; I think statistics to be something like most often password and so on, maybe I am wrong). Then I hope to solve important todos spread over the code, clean up unimplemented parts and make a release to take feedback. Priorities: settings, status, todos, clean up, release.
