DONE Successfully written char set file: german.chr (2 characters) But it seems that umlauts and a special german "s" can not be part of the *.chr file. And much worse - lines with valid passwords and containing special characters (e.g. umlauts) will be completely ignored. (in my example only the last line was parsed) I found some hints about umlauts only in the john.conf file: > This defines the keyboard layout, by default for a QWERTY keyboard. > Please note that the sizes of m and mc arrays assume 7-bit > characters and will need to be doubled for 8-bit characters such as > umlauts. Who can give me some hints? How can I add 8-bit characters in a *.chr file?
