Subject: HOW TO ? is JOHN the right tool ?? just use my own wordlist and save
 password combinations to a file...

hi there john users!

sorry for my bad english. ill try my best.

my problem is that i got a list of words n phrases and i was looking for 
a programm or script that would combine the words (lines) within my 
personal wordlist file into several possible combinations. there should 
not be any crackin or unix/passwd stuff. all i need is a plain text file 
containing combinations of words from my personal word file. lets say.. 
"possible passwords".

after searching a while through inet i found john and as long i 
understand it, it seems to contain the functions that i am looking for. 
however, after reading the FAQ, the Examples and the other readmes im 
still not able to make john what i would like to.

so question now is: is there a way to make john create a text file just 
containing all possible combinations of words (also whole lines 
including spaces because they are phrases) of a specific lengh and all 
lowercase n stuff?

im stuck..need a helping hand.. could someone pls lead me the way?

my wordfile example
have a nice day
school is out

max length of a guessed combination (lets call it password) should be 20

it should combine my "words" like this:

have a nice day2006


school is outforsummer
summerschool is out2006for


is john the right tool for that?

thanks for any advice!
