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 USE UNIX/LINUX:
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
