Subject: Re: python *2john scripts

Getting the error's your getting now that I have the right interpreter.
Can't see any obvious solutions though.

At least for the 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.
