Thank you.  Tell me about the out of date dox.  What dingo out there does
not keep his dox up to date.  We should fire him ;^0

Agreed. I do need some clean up, and also doc some missing things.  Hell,
the CONSTx=string is not even documented in the dyna_script document (my
oversight).

Again, thanks for the fixes.  They are certainly correct.  They are far from
comprehensive on what needs to be added.  I doubt that sha1 is documented
(much), that how to (and WHY to) switch from SSE to X86 and back is not
documented well, and I am 99% sure that Md4 is not even mentioned.

Unfortunately, there was quite a bit of 'want to do' on the dynamic, and a
lot of that was put in there.  But proper dox have NOT been done to match up
with dynamic really 'does', and how/what you can script with it.  It is
probably too late to get this into J6, especially since I do not have the
time to put into it right now to get it 'correct'.  I hope I have a little
more time later in the week, but right now, I am not even at a computer. I
am 50 miles outside of town camping, using a borrowed smart phone to VPN
into home.  Certainly not an ideal setup to look at a 8k+ line format, and
try to get the dox right.

Jim.
