This would also be unfair if the different implementations don't support the same maximum password length: raw-sha1 55 raw-sha1-ng 15 But even with the same format name and the same source file there is no guarantee that the maximum password length for the sse2 implementation is the same as for the mmx implementaion. So we might compare apples to oranges even if we just compare an sse2 and an mmy build. Frank
