Right now it looks like (+ algo-patch applied): --format=NAME force hash type NAME: DES/BSDI/MD5/BF/AFS/LM/NT/XSHA/ PO/raw-MD5/IPB2/raw-sha1/md5a/hmac-md5/KRB5/bfegg/nsldap/ssha/openssha/oracle/MY SQL/mysql-sha1/mscash/lotus5/DOMINOSEC/NETLM/NETNTLM/NETLMv2/NETHALFLM/mssql/mss ql05/epi/phps/mysql-fast/pix-md5/sapG/sapB/md5ns/HDAA I like to suggest that algorithms are listed in a list + very short description what they are for or where there are used. I do not know each algorithm either (for example epi, never took a look..) thus I think this might be handy. I have such a example in mind: DES - default unix crypt() DES ... ... mysql-sha1 - SHA1 generated by MySQL ... ... HDAA - (well, no clue, never needed it yet). Also maybe a lil unification: tolower or tobigger... but mixed? This wont change anything in the functionality but I think it might be handy. Regards, Rembrandt
