I should have grepped the files in the doc directory before asking. I always admire how patient you are with john users who ask questions which can easily be answered just by RTFM. Be assured that I did read the documentation. But may be I should repeat the exercise from time to time, to refresh what I might have forgotten and to learn what's new. I was so surprised by seeing the two new external modes using variables I never saw in the other external modes that I just couldn't help asking because I was afraid I might have missed other variables that could have been helpful in my own external modes. > both > of type "int".
