I'm currently taking a PHP course and we've been asked to install crack the PHP PECL extension to test password security. My issue is being able to get this running on Windows so I'm wondering if any of you have had success with it.


I see the installation instructions but I'm not clear what exactly is supposed to be done. I found the DLL put it in the /ext folder and then added extesnion=php_crack.dll to php.ini but it didn't work. I'm assuming you have to actually install something.

The instructions are assuming that you've used PECL before which I haven't. I'm looking for some more concise steps. Any help would be much appreciated.
