Have dumped my wallet with pywallet.py after my encrypted bitcoin wallet crashed and is unaccessible. How can I use this data to find the private keys associated with my addresses and thus accessall my btc?

thanks in advance

What?

Anyway, the dump is nothing but a text file which can be opened with any standard editor.
I already erased the dumps I played with before, so I cannot look up the prefix for the private keys.

But I remember that it wasn't very complex. Create a new unencrypted wallet and just copy+paste a string into the key field and it'll tell you if the import was successful.
Also, I think I had to switch the format option from base58 to hex.

cant seem to get my password to work even with joric's pywallet fork. the functionality of encryption prevents me from getting around this encryption PW huh? i have the right password, is it really possible the bitcoin client corrupted my very password?

as such, all i can get is the encrypted keys in awallet dump. any way around this issue?
