How is --stdin supposed to work ? I'm not sure to understand. I know for
sure that the password for one of my hash is "baseball". I did ./john
--stdin pw1.txt . I got a command line, I enter "baseball" and press ENTER.
A new command line appears to enter another word. How do I trigger the
attack with --stdin? My john.pot file is always empty, so I guess my
password is never found. If I put baseball in a file and --wordlist=file, I
am able to get it working.
