There are some more steps that Max uses, including, I think, some scaling. That may fit in with your multiplication. I don't think Bash can handle that math on its own*, but I'm working on a Python script, that I already am having success with in a Colab session. I'm sure I could get Python to perform the activity. Thanks for bringing it to the discussion!

*I actually could create a Bash function that would step through a string from end to beginning, doing doubling along the way, but that might be involved and probably a bit messy.
