comment How can I force a script to use more resources?
I don't understand one thing. According to man bash, =~ compare two expressions, doesn't it? However, if we are just matching two strings, why == doesn't work?

mmm, what does the =~ do? First time I see it.

the nice example also lasts 50s. The example of the table is the good one.

The first example is taking exactly the same time as when bruteforcing. Maybe it has something to do that I'm running the script in a VM? Exactly it's taking 50s on 3 chars. The VM setup is 2 cores 3GHz and 2 GB RAM.

I think you didn't get what I said above. Using a dictionary with the same values that are generated on a bruteforcing attack, the duration of the script is the same. For instance, for i in $(cat wordlist) do echo -e "$i" | openssl passwd -salt ab -stdin; done lasts the same as the script above.

comment How can I force a script to use more resources?
yea, indeed passwd was missing :D. That's what my teacher want me to do, modify the script so it is quicker, and I thought about increasing the resources usage. What other solutions do I have? I've tried to use a dictionary with every possible combination, but it lasts the same as when bruteforcing.

I need to use shell script. It's not for "production", it's for knowledge purposes. maybe a -crypt is missing on the command, but anything else. And -crypt is the default I think.

If I wanted to use it for real brute-forcing, I would use John or Hydra. But that script is part of my Master's programme, and I need to use that for "learning purposes".
