Yes, thanks.

I chopped the first 2 chars off to use as the salt but, as you said, the hash actually started $6$ with a $ delimiter at the 8th char.

so this must be the MD5 format

The start of the hash is "$6$ENtbbZ8/$" so the $salt would be "ENtbbZ8/" ? ...
and then my little code snippet might work?

Will check out the crypt manpage Thank you.

    I believe that would be SHA512, the passwords start with $6$ -- Crypt::Password can handle it, I think.
