Mostly, it is an array of very simple function pointers, such as: clear-this-buffer, append-this-string, crypt-this-buffer, convert-this-to-base-16-and-append-to-buffer, etc, etc. Those are not the real function names, but that is pretty much 'what' they do, and how much smarts they have. So if you wanted to (with current dynamic), do 10k crypt of the crypt, you would simply have to build a format with whatever initialization code was needed to get things 'started', and then 10k of these (well, 9999 of the 2nd part): DynamicFunc__crypt_md5_in1_to_out2 DynamicFunc__clean_input2 DynamicFunc__append_from_last_output2_as_raw DynamicFunc__crypt2_md5() DynamicFunc__clean_input2_kwik DynamicFunc__append_from_last_output2_as_raw DynamicFunc__crypt2_md5() DynamicFunc__clean_input2_kwik DynamicFunc__append_from_last_output2_as_raw // 9996 more of the: DynamicFunc__clean_input2_kwik DynamicFunc__overwrite_from_last_output2_as_base16_no_size_fix DynamicFunc__crypt2_md5() // then a final DynamicFunc__clean_input2_kwik DynamicFunc__overwrite_from_last_output2_as_base16_no_size_fix DynamicFunc__crypt_md5_in2_to_out1 so that the crypt result is in the 'proper' location for comparision. Its ugly code, but that is the current limitations of dynamic format.
