Subject: Re: NT hast maxlen questions...

Ok, I found the params.h file but not sure how to
adjust.  I mean what if I wanted to check 16 character
passwords?  Then I'd have 95^16 which is >> 2^64 even
if you adjust the SCALE term.  And if you go ahead and
just make the lenghth 16 and violate the 64 bit
requirment, it appears the *.chr files no longer are
appropriate.  So maybe NT hases are split? and
therefore the lenght of 8 is ok?
