Subject: Re: noob question!

Dan, all -

"<anything> question" is never a descriptive message Subject, especially
not on john-users.  Please use more specific Subject on further occasions
(e.g., "how to use --show" or "issue with --show" would have been better).

Normally, "--show" should in fact show both the usernames and the
cracked passwords.  However, with so many formats supported in jumbo,
including some that involve implicit encoding syntax conversion, things
may sometimes be trickier.

Please try including the "--format" option that you had used for
password cracking also along with "--show".  Does this help?

What format are you using?  What do the input file and john.pot file
lines look like (for those specific hashes - just be sure to obfuscate
the actual hashes and passwords before posting any samples)?
