Subject: Password file hash type analysis in JtR

John Users,


I know that Unix/Linux and Windows password files can have multiple hash
types in them, I think the following output/utility would be useful in JtR.

I'm not sure if it would be best served as a separate utility, or added
functionality to the JtR executable.



Potential new output:

The following password hash format(s) was/were discovered in the input file






Line(s) 1-30 contained <format1> type passwords

Line(s) 31-60 contained <format2> type passwords


Line(s) 61-90 contained <formatx> type passwords



What do you think?
