For --markov=*, I don't provide any completion. Still, I think this would be a good addition. A similar > approach could be used for -users, -groups, -shells and -salts. IMO, this won't work. The option --markov is valid without =value, but the others aren't. If I would have just --users on the command line, and press [tab], I would end up with --users=[-]LOGIN|UID[,..] > Perhaps you could do this: > $ ./john --markov > --markov --markov[=LEVEL[:START[:END[:LENGTH]]]] > > This is even better than the usage blob, where this is too long to fit. Sure. I did, however, remove the outer pair of square brackets, otherwise the second option would include the first one as a special case. $ ./john --markov --markov --markov=LEVEL[:START[:END[:LENGTH]]] If we extend the usage of markov to --markov=MKV_SECTION (referring to a section [Options.Markov:...], we can add the third option to the expansion logic.
