Great, I'll try it out. This will be very convenient as-is, especially for new users that don't remember all options. I suppose an intermediate step towards perfection could be to hard-code rules and external modes that are included in JtR per default. BTW for easier implementation of dynamic completion we could add hidden options to john. For example, "john --list-rules" and "john --list-ext-modes". This would make realtime loading easier, automatically following .include directives and so on. It should also support "john --conf=other.conf --list-rules". I suppose we should add a make target that just copies src/bash to /etc/bash_completion.d/ and mention this in some documentation file. Oh btw, did you ever try "make lin" and two TABs? Look at /etc/bash_completion.d/make to see how it's done. Not that I understand a word of it :) magnum
