Subject: john --make-charset=custom.chr: Can't get the hang of using it. :-(


I have a .txt file containing a few characters from which a password was 
made. I have the hash of the password.

I use the command:

./john --make-charset=custom.chr mypasswd.txt

where "mypasswd.txt" contains characters (AbCdEf)

I get the error:

Loaded 0 plaintexts, exiting...

Looks like I could use a manual! However,I am told that one does not 
exist. I will create my own, step by step :-)

Please assist in using that john command. What I read seems to relate to 
password lists:

 From john examples:

	john --make-charset=custom.chr passwd1 passwd2
	[ Configure your custom "incremental" mode now. See below. ]
	john -i=custom passwd3

Where does passwd3 appear from?
