Yes, I recommend reading our documentation under doc/ instead of that unofficial man page. > May I continue with this query?

If you can arrive at a reasonably small number of different masks that represent your possible passwords, then I recommend that you use mask mode (run it multiple times with the different masks). For example: ./john --mask='[Ff]irstword197[0-4][Ss]econdword123[*!][*!]' passwd and so on for other word orderings, etc. > I tried the method, (actually just before receiving you reply): > > echo :AbCdEf > john.pot > ./john --make-charset=custom.chr > > It resulted in the numbers being treated individually which made me ask > about a 'group' set. You may also try training incremental mode on multiple samples similar to your password - not on mere lists of characters. Alexander
