We'll end up with a lot of things on the menu but maybe that is just a good thing. What do you (all) say? I have some thoughts on the matter, but I have no time for a discussion right now. One of the aspects I am going to consider is download size of the tarball that will include at least some of the .chr files for which we provide john.conf sections. For example, for all.chr or maybe ascii.chr (hey, I independently thought of this name!), I may apply a filter() which limits the length to 15 and charset to the 95 ASCII chars. The resulting file (from RockYou) is 6 MB. Without the limits, and with the compile-time CHARSET_LENGTH of 24, it is 9 MB. Those extra 3 MB are mostly useless data. For digits.chr, though, I am going to leave it without stricter length limits, so it'll go up to length 24. Another option is to provide a separate tarball with .chr files - all of them? or just extras? I think a basic set of RockYou-based charset files may be about 10 MB compressed, but a full set about 40 MB or more. Alexander
