Subject: Re: Interface for John

I've created a wiki page for JtR GUI sketches:

I've uploaded my screenshots of Joseph's and Aleksey's programs to there.

Please feel free to register for a wiki account and add to that page.
You may even upload your programs (but you may need to gzip-compress
them first for the wiki to accept the upload and use the proper MIME
type for it), and indeed you may upload more screenshots.  To upload a
file, click the picture icon while editing the page.

I got your "tester" Linux binary working under Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit (in
an OpenVZ container).  The design looks good to me.  The actual options
being presented will need to change a lot, though, which may affect the
design too.

What do you mean by it being a "wrapper for john", though?  I think it
is not able to invoke John yet, or is it?  And the GUI design looks like
it is for the "integrated" approach, not the "wrapper" approach.  Maybe
you referred to some other implementation that you did not share yet?

Anyhow, besides the Linux binary, can you perhaps share the source code?

Is this just for interaction simultaneously with the GUI user and with
the running John?

Luckily, it also works in Ubuntu 10.10, but I expect that it will fail
on most other Linux distros/versions.  We'll need to experiment with
half-static builds and their portability; we might end up switching to
Qt if that makes semi-portable builds easier.
