Subject: Re: Password file hash type analysis in JtR

The trouble is you can "probably" detect the correct hash types
in a file, and jtr defaults to the first one it finds (or thinks it finds...)
even if there is only one of that type. Many times you really do
have to specify what the hash is, because it might look like another
hash. I think someone could script the detection of the hash type or
possible hash type easier and faster than adding the code to jumbo
or whatever. If JtR finds multiple types, perhaps it could ask if you
want to crack a certain one/type? I think this function might be
better outside JtR. Perhaps getting JtR to look at each line
and output it's "guess" at what hash type it is could be done.
