OK, you do it - I'll send you the binary of a program there's no
source to, you tell me the offsets to every getpwent call therein,
making sure they are genuine pwent calls and not just data bytes that
happen to look the same...

Incidentally, remember that not all programs will load registers in
the same order, and that the arguments pushed on the stack are not
necessarily done consecutively...

You game?

Best wishes from Riley.
