For those of you not familiar with the CrackLib Library:

CrackLib (or PHP Crack) can not cope with plaintext wordlists.
You have to generate a binary version of any plaintext list first.

After you have done this you get 3 files with different extensions:




crack_opendict() must be called with the first argument describing the path and base filename of the binary wordlist, e.g. C:\....\my_list or /usr/local/... (see below)

Now the bad news - how to generate the 3 files:

The only way i managed to do it:

o Download the CrackLib package from sourceforge (see link in php.net txt)
o run configure
o run make all
o run make install
o run make dict (having the wordlists in the /dict directory)
o look for the files in /usr/local/share/cracklib/
o copy the files in a convenient directory

That's it.

Please note that the manual is a little bit misleading when providing references.  The sourceforge URL cited
(i.e. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cracklib) is the homepage of cracklib the enabler (upon which other things build), NOT the crack PECL extension.  If you are a PHP user looking for the crack PECL extension, you should NOT download from sourceforge.  Instead, you should download from the PECL homepage (http://pecl.php.net).  When you are there, search for "crack" not "cracklib".
