Subject: Re: Added a john 'testing suite' to the patch page

I built this under solaris (and winbloze), but in my .profile I think I have 
./ added to the path.

as for ksh, I use that all the time under solaris and free/openbsd.  Guess 
it is always there on systems i use.

One other big issue, is there is NO way to control the john.log file (which 
I despise, 99% o of the time).  I did not want to rm ../john.log on the case 
that someone actually 'wanted' that hog to not be removed.   I use the 
config from ../john.conf, and over load the pot file to ./john.pot,   That 
way, I can clean up the pot file before each test.  But that log file gets 
damn big.  Just something someone needs to know.  They will have to hand 
remove it.
