Hi guys,

So I've had john running for the past five or six days, and the power
just went out. The command I was running was:

$ ./JohnTheRipper-bleeding-jumbo/run/john --session=8char
--min-length=8 zipfile.john

How can I use --restore with a named session?

Just running --restore without the session begins a new session.
