Subject: Re: how to print our the number of guesses john the
 ripper makes to crack a password

Thanks Alexander. But how can i get the number of candidate passwords
(guesses) that has been made from the timestamps that I get from Cracked
lines in the .log file?

I can understand that I can extract the number of combinations from .rec
file at the end of cracking. but is there any way I can see the number of
combinations tested for each cracked password?

there is no special reason for using this version. I just had this version
configured and did not need anything more to get the newer version. but I
will try it.
