Ignoring performance and space concerns and the fact that you'd
probably be better served with an exhaustive dictionary and a mangler
to go with it, running 'john' by itself (no options) produces this:

--stdout[=LENGTH]          just output candidate passwords [cut at LENGTH]

So 'john --stdout=8' will output all the passwords JtR has been
configured to generate at 8 characters or less.
