There are techniques floating around that exploit the ] function in oclHashcat to enable it to do a Dictionary Attack. Note that this was developed in the early days of the old oclHashcat-old when there was no oclHashcat. Nowadays there is no more need for it.

Our recommendation: Do not use it. Use oclHashcat if you want to do a Dictionary attack on GPU.
