 Well, I checked in the _fmt*.c in the src folder.

 For example for a very basic hash format, I can read :

static struct fmt_tests tests[] = {
	{FORMAT_TAG "378e2c4a07968da2eca692320136433d","thatsworking"},
	{FORMAT_TAG "8ad8757baa8564dc136c1e07507f4a98","test3"},
	{"d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e", ""},

 The right syntax in the JTR's terminal is 
 "format=raw-md5 "
 and the hashlist must be build as

 These infos are absolutely NOT shown in the _fmt*.c

 How newbies, can guess the right syntax ??????

 We request since severals months (years ?) a complete documentation
 formatted as following

 HASHLIST FORMAT =  user:d6aa97d33d459ea3670056e737c99a3d
 JTR SYNTAX = john -format=raw-md5 hashlist.txt

 We have a very good example, but seems incomplete (was with john-1.7.8-jumbo-5).

 In the next release, can you add a PDF/HTML file with all formats/commands inspired from ?

 thanks for all your hard works.
