Hey guys,

I've been reading the documentation for JTR and I used to use this program a few years ago. Now it seems like it's missing some of the features it had.

I am pretty sure you used to be able to specify your char set from the command line.

I read that now you can generate a custom character set file based on previously cracked passwords. But that is all I can find. That is useless if you have no cracked data.

It seems like you are stuck with the default character sets of Alpha, ALL, Digits, Alnum, lanman, etc...

For example how could I generate a char file that uses only lowercase letters and !@$ ?

I swear I remember that I used to be able to use something like

--charset =[abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz!@#$]

I cannot find anywhere in the docs or in google where you can do this.
Mind you, it has been a few years since I used this prog.

Please advise if I need to up my prescription.
