still ongoing but thank you for the vote of confidence.  and glad the code will
get a work-out.  :-)

quickly cobbled up example of what I think you have in mind, ie automating the
dictionary creation, below.  hth.

regards, jr.

#version 3.8;

global_settings {assumed_gamma 1}

#include "foreach.inc"

#declare A = array {
  "Aa", "Ab", "Ac", "Ad", "Ae", "Af", "Ag", "Ah", "Ai", "Aj", "Ak", "Al", "Am",
  "An", "Ao", "Ap", "Aq", "Ar", "As", "At", "AA", "Av", "Aw", "Ax", "Ay", "Az"

#macro mkKeys(i_,j_,elem_,arg_)
  #local arg_[elem_] = i_ * j_;

#declare D = dictionary {
  .Macro: "mkKeys",
  .Walk: 1,
  .Extra: on,
  .Arg: "R"

#declare R = dictionary {
  .foo: 0


#debug concat("Az = ",str(R.Az,0,0),".\n")
