The code still contains a conditional part which i used with the
initial tests.
If you change
  /* # def ine Make_isombr_part_dummY yes */
to
  #define Make_isombr_part_dummY yes
and recompile, then it will not write but rather report where and
how many bytes would be written.

But i still doubt that this would have any value in practice.
(Maybe if it gave a detailed description what and why it would do ...)

Let's see what the emerging user community gives as feedback.


Have a nice day :)
