"Incremental" mode.

This is the most powerful cracking mode, it can try all possible
character combinations as passwords.  However, it is assumed that
cracking with this mode will never terminate because of the number of
combinations being too large (actually, it will terminate if you set a
low password length limit or make it use a small charset), and you'll
have to interrupt it earlier.

That's one reason why this mode deals with trigraph frequencies,
separately for each character position and for each password length,
to crack as many passwords as possible within a limited time.

trigraph frequencies
each character position and for each password length

guess it answer my questions

looked in the source
saw 3d table , guess it is for the 3 last chars , then u decalre an array of 
that for the next char , but didnt see a different one for each position?

thanks
