    Default crunch 2.6 released


    I have just released crunch 2.6. Version 2.5 had a memory leak which lead to a seg fault under certain circumstances. Here is what is new since 2.4:

    add -q which is like -p but reads from a specified file
    -t now supports upper and lowercase characters
    add more character sets to charset.lst
    combine -m and -p into -p
    improved documentation
    resume now supports -b
    -s now supports @*%^ symbols in -t
    added a status report when the file gets renamed
    show the user how large the resulting output will be BEFORE generating anything
    added a 3 second delay before crunch starts generating output. It gives the user time to read how large the file(s) will be and press Ctrl-C if they want to abort.
    did a little code cleaning (removed some unnecessary casts, made the parameter processing a little more robust, sorted the parameters in the comments, etc).

    I hope it was worth the wait. You can download crunch 2.6 from:

    If you have any problems or questions please let me know.
    I like the bleeding edge, but I don't like blood loss

    Default your work is very appreciated.

    Fixing the seg fault issue has made my day. Thanks for spending the time. Crunch is maturing nicely.

    Yeah certainly worth the wait. Crunch is my favourite wordlist generator.

    Updating this package is on my do-to list for today.

    EDIT: This has been updated and should be in the repos in the next few days.
