No.  It must also be used with the other functions if you want to
oerride parameters which are derived from the curve name.  Without that
flag the code does not try to parse extra parameters:

  @item param
  @cindex param
  For ECC key generation also return the domain parameters.  For ECC
  signing and verification override default parameters by provided
  domain parameters of the public or private key.
Thus for those functions the use of "parm" requres a few more CPU



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
