Personally I would prefer having it show how many password candidates it has processed instead of this candidate*hash figure but I'm not sure how to produce that number. BTW, another thing I've been contemplating for lab studies is a command line option for pegging keys_per_crypt to 1 regardless of what the format says. This would make for a 1:1 correlation between rule and guess in the log file, for studying which rules are most effective. But I'm not sure how a format having min_keys_per_crypt > 1 would behave. Of course, min_keys too would be forced down to 1 - but if the format was not made for this I'm not sure if there could be problems (other than the obvious performance drop). magnum
