When I want to feed passwords from a pot file into the next cracking
sessions, I usually do

cut -d: -f 2- john.pot|sort|uniq -c|sort -nr|sed 's#^ *[0-9] ##', so
that the most frequently used passwords appear at the top of the new

So, it just beats me why anybody would want to use the closed-loop mode
for pot files ;)
