Also this module contains own implementation of cracklib isn't compatible with known cracklib library (http://sourceforge.net/projects/cracklib/), so you can't use dictionaries from sf cracklib.
(PECL crack >= 0.1)
crack_opendict — Opens a new CrackLib dictionary
crack_opendict() opens the specified CrackLib dictionary for use with crack_check().
This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, its name, and surrounding documentation may change without notice in a future release of PHP. This function should be used at your own risk.
Only one dictionary may be open at a time.
The path to the Cracklib dictionary.
Returns a dictionary resource identifier on success or FALSE on failure.
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
