It can be made to using a variety of tools, in linux "cut" is perfect to
pipe john output to...
./john -show passwords.txt |cut -d":" -f2
cat john.pot|cut -d":" -f2  (put in full path to john.pot)

if using windows  (put in full path to john.pot in command below)
powershell "get-content john.pot | ForEach-Object {$_.split(':')[1]}

I'm not aware of a native way to output just the password.
There may be a way to use "stdout" and "loop" to do this, but I'm not sure
it's needed.
