Instead of just suppressing lines containing hashes which have been cracked, --show=LEFT output removes all columns except user name and hash, and it also prints each uncracked hash just once, even if it appears multiple times in the input file. This is unfortunate, because the information which is missing in john's --show=LEFT output could still be useful for further cracking sessions, especially for single mode. Can we just change the behavior of --show=LEFT, possibly breaking some scripts which rely on the current poutput? Or do we need to support the current behavior in the future, so that a new --show=??? option is required? Frank
