    Default Questions about the wpa.txt file and how to use cat

    Hi!

    Long time no see, i feel like i have to start in this subforum again

    I have two questions that i was inable to find when i searched through this forum and on google.

    1. The wpa.txt, how can i see if my routers password is in there? Try with some google searches to do a grep command with a outputfile if there was the password i searched for but i think it didnt work becouse the text file was generated very fast and empty. So the question is if somebody know a good command that can search through this hugh list kinda fast and give a output if my password that im searching for is in that list.

    2. Is there any good "software" that i can use to view big files like this fast?

    Bonus question:
    3. Is there any command you can use with aircrack so it only test with passwords thats starts on (well lets say) BA for an example. So it doesnt test with all the other passwords. I feel kinda rusty since it was a long time i used this but all answers or links where i can read more about commands for this is appreciated

    Have a nice day!

    Regards

    1. grep is all you need for question 1
    grep yourawesomepassword wpa.txt (add " > output.txt" if you want results in a file)

    2. I've heard good things about ultraedit

    3. grep can sort out words starting with a certain pattern
    grep -w BA

    Suggested reading: man cat, man grep, http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ing-guide.html
