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). > > clip of examples > >Frank 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.
