This looks like a brute force cracker that can also use a wordlist. A
"wordlist" in this context is a dictionary that can try "real words"
rather than just all of the possible combinations and permutations of
the letters. * If you want to try it, you might also google search for
"pdfcrack wordlist" for how to find and use wordlists.
* If you don't know, a wordlist approach would try, for example: cab,
cad, can, cap, cat . . . instead of caa, cab, cac, cad, cae, caf, cag,
cah, cai . . . . Good wordlists are much more sophisticated than just a
dictionary . . .
