Both with empty john.pot. I was measuring with commands like: echo | time ./john --format=lm --stdin passwd So jumbo's loader appears to be about 10% slower. I did not investigate why. Maybe because of the introduction of prepare()? BTW, the current choice of PASSWORD_HASH_SIZE_FOR_LDR = 4 seems optimal. While going for 5 reduces the load time for 10 million hashes by about 50% (to 18 sec), it also increases load time for 1 million hashes by 70% (to over 3 sec). And it's extra memory that may or may not be returned to the OS. So unless we make it conditional on expected hash count (by file size?), I think we should just keep it at 4. Alexander
