I have to admit I didn't know about StatusShowCandidates. How is that impacted as passwords are cracked. Let's say you are cracking 10 passwords and you crack five of them really early. Do you still take the total number of guesses and divide it by 10? Or do you have to calculate the number of passwords cracked per step. Aka start out dividing by 10 until the first one is cracked, then divide any *new* guesses by 9, and so on. I actually like having the config options in the john.conf file, but that's simply because it's easier for me to have a john_research.conf where I have everything set up and then use the -config= option on the command line. What might be nice though is to have one config option that would override all the various other settings and set up a standard "testing" run. That's very low priority though. What I probably need to do is create a first draft of a "research readme" about the various settings in John that might be interesting for someone doing password cracking research. I'll obviously make a lot of mistakes/omissions but then people can correct me and we can document ways to run tests using John. Also, I feel there's a lot of good functionality in John that most people simply don't know about. For example, figuring out how to use the "dummy" format required a bit of Google searching on my part, and as I said, I had no clue about the StatusShowCandidates. Matt
