Incremental and Markov) and it will also affect Single and Wordlist modes in that they will drop words shorter than N (after applying rules, if applicable). Both --min-length=N and --max-length=N (and their effect on different cracking modes (--incremental and --markov / --wordlist and --single / --external) need to be documented in doc/OPTIONS. Since we are not running out of space in out --list=hidden-options output, we might improve the wording for these two options (or refer to doc/OPTIONS once the documentation exists). > BTW we need some systematic testing of these new options. I knew how --min-length=N and --max-length=N work for --incremental and --markov (tested this in the past). After my last reply to Jim I tested it with --wordlist (with and without --rules), and was just thinking about how to test it for --single mode (since --single doesn't work well with --stdout). What happens (what is the expected behaviour) if --single or --wordlist is combined with an --external filter? Frank
