So it is not so trivial. However I think it is possible to show line with format and cracked/left statistics for each loaded format. > Widely I propose also to show hints for user about formats that > potentially could be read from this file. (I am not sure that it is > possible.) Hints could be at the same line as statistics for certain format. It could look like following: $ john -show passwd login1:password1:... ... <empty line> nt: 0 cracked, 1000 left (nt is like mscash1, mscash2) des: 10 cracked, 0 left 10 cracked, 1000 left (note about nt, mscash: this example is not intended to be realistic) Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
