Subject: Re: john --make-charset=custom.chr: Can't get the hang of using it. :-(

mine is a slightly different issue. I run the command as stated in the example (./john --make-charset custom.chr custom.txt) where custom.txt happens to be a crunch created wordlist for letters, numbers and only 2 special chars (exclamation point and period).

the command runs and nothing else happens (it just sits there on a blank line).

so, what gives?
