Subject: John rules with utf8 chars?


I want to use johns rules to expand a text file.
For example this rules:

./JohnTheRipper/run/john --wordlist=./pwl.txt --rules=Currency--stdout | xxd

I thought this will add a Pound and a Euro sign at the end of each word.
Instead it added the ascii char hex c2 to a line and hex a3 to the next
line. If I take a look at utf8, this is the encoding of the pound sign.
In the john.conf file is written that I could use \xA3 for the pound
sign in iso-8859 codepage. But this is only a workaround. Is it possible
to use utf8 in the rule definition?

If not, is there a alternitive for expanding text files with rules like
in john?
