I propose that the following options are moved to "hidden" because they are either for expert use or for very rare cases: --config=FILE use FILE instead of john.conf or john.ini --make-charset=FILE make a charset file. It will be overwritten --mem-file-size=SIZE size threshold for wordlist preload (default 5 MB) --crack-status emit a status line whenever a password is cracked --max-run-time=N gracefully exit after this many seconds --regen-lost-salts=N regenerate lost salts (see doc/OPTIONS) --plugin=NAME[,..] load this (these) dynamic plugin(s) The --make-charset is arguable because it's a core option. Note that "hidden" options are not really hidden anymore, but instead of shown in the main usage blob, they are listed with --list=hidden-options. We could also (or instead) move the format list closer to bottom as that is (IMHO) what you most often look at. magnum
