Subject: Re: python *2john scripts

I've never tested the pdf2python script on windows but I'd assume it passes
on the cygwin version & not the activestate one because the cygwin version
would be much more like the versions on mac & linux. I'll have a look at it
tonight. Is the a bug in both cygwin & activestate?
