Subject: Re: Password generating tool

This scripts work great. But now after using and testing i search for 
other hash types. i try some other hash types from the 
Authen::Passphrase but it seems that john cannot handle these ones. i am 
using john with the markov extensions.
some other suggestions for getting hashes with scripts like the perl one?
