In wordlist mode (after applying rules, if any), a word that is not within the requested limits will be rejected (not truncated). Most other modes also honour these settings. For example, you can fully exhaust a short keyspace with incremental mode with eg. --max-len=4 and then start a longer session for the rest with --min-length=5, or use one core for lengths up to 8 and other cores for exact lengths of 9, 10 and so on. Note: With UTF-8 encoding, non-ASCII characters will use more than one byte. -- Marek Wrzosek marek.wrzosek@...il.com
