So, here comes a list of options (either from the main usage screen or from --list=hidden-options) which are not mentioned in doc/OPTIONS. (I didn't count doc/CHANGES-jumbo and doc/CHANGES-jumbo.git as documentation for options which aren't documented anywhere else.) --device=N (Only for GPU) --help Since I submitted the patch which added the --help option, I'll come up with a patch documenting it. (Not that --help would need much documentation.) --log-stderr --markov This option is well documented in doc/MARKOV. So doc/OPTIONS just needs a very short description and a pointer to doc/MARKOV. --max-length=N May be in addition to doc/OPTIONS we also need to adjust doc/MARKOV, doc/INCREMENTAL, doc/EXTERNAL, doc/MODES, doc/EXAMPLES doc/README-OPENCL does mention this option: "Some formats honour the --max-length option, ..." --max-run-time=N The files mentioned for --max-length=N might need to be updated. --pipe This option is mentioned in doc/ENCODINGS: $ iconv < greek.8859-7.dict -f iso-8859-7 -t cp737 | ./john -pipe -enc:cp737 ... What about s#./john -pipe -enc:cp737#./john --pipe -encoding=cp737# here? --platform=N (Only for OpenCL) --plugin=NAME[,..] I am afraid there are not that many people who would be able to document --plugin=NAME. (I still need to know how to find possible completions for --plugin= in my bash completion script.) --raw-always-valid=C --request-scalar (OpenCL only) --request-vectorize (OpenCL only) Frank
