Thank you for clarifying, however do you might be able to provide an example
of what the john.pot would look like?  Perhaps an included sample of a fake 
john.pot would be quite useful in the docs section as without having 'cracked'
any passwords as of yet, i'm not sure as to what it looks like, or even if the
format matters at all?  

In my case would a john.pot with upper and lower alphabet letters only in
order to generate a .chr file simply be a textfile with a block of 52 characters
randomly mixed up?

Thanks again for your continued assistance on this.
