Subject: Re: Default attack format

Okay, let's do that. Regarding magnum's approach (background a `john -stdin
hashfile <<< ""` and track the output), I'm trying to parse the output
I found the line in core/jumbo :

>     printf("Loaded %s (%s%s%s [%s])\n",
>         john_loaded_counts(),
>         database.format->params.label,
>         database.format->params.format_name[0] ? ", " : "",
>         database.format->params.format_name,
>         database.format->params.algorithm_name);
It produces something like Loaded 2 password hashes with 2 different salts
(md5crypt, crypt(3) $1$ [MD5 256/256 AVX2 8x3])
1) Can I rely on the fact that the default format is always written with
this sentence on standard output ?
2) If I can rely on that, I'll use a wildcard regexp "Loaded *
