    Default crunch and unicode support

    Hi,

    I have been researching adding unicode support to crunch so others can use it. However that just made me think does anyone use crunch to generate non english words. I know that there is swedish character support in charset.lst. Is there any language that can't be handled in the charset.lst? Would adding unicode support to crunch be useful to anyone?

    Thanks,

    Might want to ask this question in the international community section. I have only needed to use a foreign wordlist once but didnt think to use crunch for that at the time.

    I would post in the international community sections if I could. I would have taken my message, used Google translate to translate the message into the proper language and posted the message in the correct language forum. Unfortunately when I tried this I found that the international community section has been locked. There are no foreign language forums for BT5 so I posted in the best place I thought appropriate. If there comes a time when there are BT5 international sections I will post there. Until then I haven't gotten any response so I am guessing there is not much value in adding this feature.

    Not a problem. Sorry if I 'sounded' rude.

    I think adding unicode support would be a good idea. Sounds like a pretty big job to do, but am sure that
    would be helpful to many.

    The blogposts I did on crunch by far get the most hits, and I see many hits from around the globe,
    Middle & Far East, all of Europe, North/South America.. even North Africa.

    Am sure that being able to utilize characters other than 'western' only would be a great addition.

    Are the International forums now simply closed or blocked by IP nationality or what ?
    (hmm.. gonna check that)
    Used to browse the german ones from time to time..

    why don't add function to avoid passwords with more than x following upper and/or lower and/or digit so for bruteforcing of long pw would be easier
