Hmm, intersting.This means that lines 344,345 dont fix the bug, simply decrease the probability of show it. > In -5, you've declared the proper local variables in cmp_one(), thereby > solving the problem. > > Now that you know that cmp_one() may be called more than once per hash > computation when large numbers of hashes are loaded, you should be able > to optimize it further for such cases. I dont think this optimization aport a significant speedup to the patch, but i give a try. -- alain -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
