In addition to the usual checks crack can also check for similarities between the password and a username and gecos field (the gecos field normally contains the person's full name on unix systems).

There is a third format for the function call which supplies these additional parameters:

bool crack_check (string $password, string $username, string $gecos, resource $dictionary)

This is true of PECL crack version 0.4, I'm not sure about earlier versions.

If you need to test a password with cracklib but don't have the necessary module available in PHP, you can use a function like this.
It requires the command line cracklib-check binary in /usr/sbin, but changing its location is trivial.
The $message variable will contain cracklib's complaint (if there is one)
You'll want to wrap your invocation of this function in a try...catch block.

<?php
function cracklibCheck($password, &$message)
{
   
// Clean up password
   
$password=str_replace("\r", "", $password);
   
$password=str_replace("\n", "", $password);

   
// Run password through cracklib-check
   
exec("echo ".escapeshellarg($password)." | /usr/sbin/cracklib-check 2>/dev/null", $output, $return_var);
   
   
// Check it ran properly
   
if($return_var==0)
    {
        if(
preg_match("/^.*\: ([^:]+)$/", $output[0], $matches))
        {
           
// Check response
           
if(strtoupper($matches[1])=="OK")
            {
               
// Password is strong
               
$message="";
                return(
true);
            }
            else
            {
               
// Cracklib doesn't like it
               
$message=$matches[1];
                return(
false);
            }
        }
        else
        {
           
// Badly formatted response from cracklib-check.
           
throw new Exception("Didn't understand cracklib-check response.");
        }
    }
    else
    {
       
// Some sort of execution error
       
throw new Exception("Failed to run cracklib-check.");
    }
}
?>
