Subject: Re: John rules with utf8 chars?

Hello Peter,

Yes, but the rules preprocessor and the rules themselves work on
individual bytes, so you shouldn't list multi-byte characters in a
preprocessor expression (the square brackets in your example) nor in
commands that expect individual characters (but the "A" commands you use
here will happily accept what they think are multi-character strings).

You can do:


or you can just type those characters in like you did if you're working
with UTF-8 directly, like most people do these days.  You just can't
combine these two rules into one line with the preprocessor.
