I don't think I can easily provide any example better than what you can obtain by simply running "john -i --stdout" and comparing the output candidate passwords against messages written to john.log. If you have difficulty matching these two, you can introduce delays into the code, e.g. with a loop in an external filter(), or patch the code. > i guess that if i understand the example i would be able to calc the > statisticts easier also You appear to be trying to duplicate this stuff first, then enhance it. This is a fine approach if you want to fully understand how things work, and this is great, but you seem to have difficulties with it and you're trying to make me "do your homework". So my advice is that you do the "homework" yourself (best), or you give up on figuring everything out and simply enhance the existing code (which is straightforward to do for the specific potential improvement that you've mentioned), or you give up completely (not great).
