Many of them for dyna are 'made up', more for testing functionality of dyna, then for finding passwords, :)

Yes, I have been thinking of 'how' to do this. I do imagine that sooner or later, I am going to have to add some way to add variables to dyna, and add functions with parameters.  But since dyna is a very very simple script language, that currently walks an array of function pointers, calling each one as it goes.

It might be possible to do by making some int variables (each var would need to be an array, that is omp_num_threads), and then the only param function would need to be a variable setter function.   I just need to spend a little more time thinking about this one, but yes, this IS on my todo list.  But when I do it, I want to make sure it is very usable, while also very fast.

Jim.
