Subject: Added a john 'testing suite' to the patch page

Not actually a patch, but I put it there.  This is a set of a couple
scripts, many input files, and a wordlist file, which tests john.  When run,
there is very little, but nice informative output, listing the format, and
how many passwords were found.  For almost all formats, 1320 is the
'correct' number.


This test is MUCH stronger than the initialization tests done within john.
There is a README.txt file, that lists where to setup the script/inputs and
how to run it.


Simple instructions are:


Uncompress into a directory under the run directory:   ./johnbuild/run/tst

Chmod +x tstall and chmod +x tstone  (may be needed to get the scripts


Then simply type tstall     (If run under Win32, there is tstall.bat and
tstone.bat which are the 'same' as tstall and tstone korn scripts).


NOTE, some formats are a little newer than what most people have (many of
the newest of the md5_gen stuff).  But they will be released soon.
