--show step too slow using large file

Great, many thanks for your answer... i ended up cancelling it after 4 days. I think i will do something like this after finishing the cracking exercise:

1.- Sort the username-hash list by hash
2.- Sort the hash - password pot file by hash
3 .- Create a new file by reading each line in  1 and finding it in 2  unless the line hash value is equal to the previous line one.

Let see how long that takes, probably a long time as well as it would have to go over the pot file again and again. I will work on how to improve the algorithm and will post the results. Many thanks again
