The pre-defined Alnum mode (and the included alnum.chr that it uses)
does just that, for lengths 1 to 8.  If you need to "lock" it to length
8 only, then you do it by changing "MinLen = 1" to "MinLen = 8".  Rather
than alter the existing Alnum mode, you may in fact define a new one:

File = $JOHN/alnum.chr
MinLen = 8
MaxLen = 8
CharCount = 36

The alnum.chr file stays the same.

On the command line, you'll use "john -i=Alnum8 ..." (with whatever
other options you need and with password file names given).
