Can't see any obvious solutions though. At least for the pdf2john.py I think it's to do with the character encoding of strings on windows. Testing the ruby versions and it works perfectly where the python one failed so there may actually be a technical reason to use the ruby code for pdf2john. I like having the binaries as a user but it's also handy not to have to compile the scripts & I find them easier to work with as a dev.
