The recent change of FMT_MAIN_VERSION from 9 to 10 in bleeding-jumbo inspired me to look at what other information might be useful to see in --list=build-info. I came up with these: Format interface version: FMT_MAIN_VERSION Charset file version: CHARSET_V Max. Markov mode level: MAX_MKV_LVL Max. Markov mode password length: MAX_MKV_LEN So, for 1.7.9-jumbo-6-fixes with the attached patch applied, the new --list=build-info output looks like this: Version: 1.7.9-jumbo-7RC Build: linux-x86-sse2i Arch: 32-bit LE $JOHN is ./ Format interface version: 9 Rec file version: REC3 Charset file version: CHR2 CHARSET_MIN: 32 (0x20) CHARSET_MAX: 126 (0x7e) CHARSET_LENGTH: 8 Max. Markov mode level: 400 Max. Markov mode password length: 30 Compiler version: 4.6.3 20120306 (Red Hat 4.6.3-2) gcc version: 4.6.3 What do you think? Should I avoid adding information that is less likely to change (e.g., the Markov mode limits)? Should I put Markov mode limits into one line, to save space for future additions? Is the charset file version useful at all? I just checked the contest edition, and the version is still CHR2. Is there other information which should have been added?
