Dear atom,

I just wanted to ask you a quick question: Which switches do you use to achieve the compression ratios for your packed hashcat archives? This seems like a non-issue and definitely off-topic, but when I unpack the hashcat archive (e.g. for version 3.6.0), and then pack it with the highest settings in 7z (ultra, lzma2), my compressed archive still uses more space than yours. Do you use any magic tricks or brute-force optiions/tools to achieve maximum compression?

Please let me know, I'm burning with curiosity :-)

Btw: Thank you (and the community) for creating hashcat. It's an awesome piece of software.

Kind regards,
Just have a look at the file tools/package_bin.sh:
