Subject: Re: how bitcoin2john works

Hi Albert ,
Thanks for reply.
I think I didn't ask the right question, because I know how the program works.
I want to understand and more information on how to execute it, I want to know how the output hash is reached by file analysis and calculation.

Most of the *2john programs, in the same directory as the john,
unshadow etc binaries, works the same way. Run the program/script and
it will give you a help text, or read the comments in the beginning of
the script. In this case:
Usage: [Bitcoin/Litecoin/PRiVCY wallet (.dat) files]

So you need to find your wallet.dat file first, then give the filename
as argument to bitcoin2john and it will spit out a hashes-file that
can be used with john.
