I'll spare you the details, although it was so bad I found it funny. It did waste some of my time though, again. Anyway, here's an incomplete list of formats with a valid() similar to 7z: fde, blackberry-es10, cloudkeychain, eCryptfs, EFS, mssql12, blockchain-opencl, encfs-opencl and RAR5. Maybe I should enable the "valid killer self-test" by default, even though it usually segfaults instead of fails with a clue. Heck, I could just throw any segfaulting format into unused without further notice, for Dhiru to fix. But even that will waste a lot of MY time and not Dhiru's. Just as compiling the above list did. And just as opening 10 GitHub issues will. magnum
