    Default request: tool for deleting les than 8 chars from wordlist.

    Hello,

    I hope the title isn't misleading misleading, but English isn't my native language.I am looking for a tool that can delete all words less then 8 characters from a huge(2 GIG) wordlist. I am not a developer, so i can't build my own.
    Is there such a tool around? And if there is, will anyone share?

    Linux basics my man. There are many ways to do this.
    Try looking around here on the forums and also look at man cut
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Like orgcandman mentioned, strings would be sufficient. Goto "man strings" and pay attention to "-n" option. This should put u on the right track.

    Didn't Purehate create a script that does this for you?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    there is a tool already called pw-inspector which is part of hydra. An example would be:
    cat really_big_list.txt | sort -u | pw-inspector -m 8 -M 63 > wpa_wordlist.txt

    sort -u will also remove all the dupes and put it in alphabetical order

    No excusue, I really forgot about this thread due to pc issues, really? Really! I got a PM and downloaded a tool called Raptor3, but my machine is not strong enough for this soft, so I splitted the file in pieces and let a certain software, which I don't own, do it's job.

    If you're piping the dictionary file into a cracker program, you could put a little program in the middle that discards words that are less than 8 characters. So instead of:

    Code:
    cat dict.txt | cracker
    you'd have:

    Code:
    cat dict.txt | awk '{ if ( length($0) >= 8 ) print $0 }' | cracker
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".
