Discussion

%HTTP_METHOD is called to specify the name of a user‑defined Synergy method that prompts the user for a Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) password any time a PEM file that has a password is accessed. This method must have one Synergy alpha argument that returns the password to use. For example, the method may look something like this:

subroutine mypasswd
    pwd         ,a
proc
    ; Prompt for password (pwd) here
    xreturn
endsubroutine

The %HTTP_METHOD function is defined as ^VAL.
