What would be *very* useful is ability to give arguments to external modes. I think it was mentioned somewhere but I'm not sure. Something like this: [List.External:Parallel (int node, int total)] ...and of course it would be run like this: $ john -e:Parallel=1,8 hashes.txt Other things on my wish-list (some or all may have been mentioned by others already). My assumptions on what is trivial may be completely wrong of course. Here goes, in no particular order: 1. sigUSRx for re-checking john.pot It doesn't have to be ultra optimized, it could just mimic an abort and resume. 2. I'd like to use -stdout together with -single I assume this is trivial. It would be very handy when debugging rules or just trying to understand them. It could be useful for piping to other crackers too. 3. Multiple rules The recent "rules=xxx" is very nice. I would love the ability to give multiple rule blocks like "-rules=wordlist,leetspeak" and/or having rules including other rules, like [List.Rules:Mega] #include Wordlist #include Crazy #include LeetSpeak specific 'Mega' rules follow... I think both alternatives are good for different things and while any of them would be nice, having both would be even better. Ideally it should detect when multiple selected rules start with : and ignore all but the first. 4. When using salts=n and finding passwords, I always use those passwords as a wordlist to all other salts too. Ideally this should be done automatically but I have a feeling this is not all that trivial. Just my 2 cents thanks MPI
