We have a problem here: the same command character is used by *hashcat for a different purpose: https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=rule_based_attack Swap @ N *XY Swaps character X with Y So we have to choose Crack compat vs. *hashcat compat. (We could also introduce some magic where '*' would act Crack-like if followed by a NOP and *hashcat-like otherwise, but I'd rather not do that.) *hashcat compat is of more practical relevance now, even though Crack was first to use this command character.
