That was my original rationale, yes - but it no longer applies. FreeBSD now supports Ulrich's SHA-crypt (at least I see it in their source tree). > It could still be usable for verifying MD5's for longer than 15 > chars, and such things.

We could also enhance c3_fmt itself to detect salts for DragonFly's broken SHA-2 stuff (now obsoleted due to our pushing). > BTW it seems OSX do have a crypt(3) capable of original DES and the one > with _salt (From memory that's BSDI, right?). Would it not work with > HAVE_CRYPT? I think it would work. Do you know if it supports anything else as well? > Not that it would add anything useful to John, except > showing how much faster optimised bitslice DES is compared to crypt calls :) Right.
