Sorry for digging up such an old topic, scrypt format has been committed to bleeding-jumbo several months ago. Is there a particular reason why one of the scrypt tests has a ciphertext and a password containing horizontal tab and line feed characters? For test purposes, I implemented --list=format-tests. Currently, my trivial patch prints format label, number, ciphertext, password, separated by horizontal tabs. So far, there's not a single test with a password containing a ':', so I could have used a colon as a delimiter. But I decided to use a tab, because I thought that passwords containing horizontal tabs would be less likely than passwords containing colons. Since one of the scrypt tests contains line feed characters, using the output of --list=format-tests is more difficult than it needs to be, even if ':' would be used as a delimiter. Frank
