Modify the H to match the C I agree. 
Changing the C file is something else, since in order to make the H file match the C file you only need to change the H.

If you also wish to do some code cleanup feel free, but make sure you are adding this also 
to the commit log.

What about removing the code from doc file, it is guaranteed that it will be
outdated again? Or perhaps just add pseudo code if required.

I Agree with you, I think it will be better to change the doc to show only the 
key lines just as in the code while the rest of the lines as pseudo code.

Do to time limitation, I will update the doc hopefully only for the 19.05 version.

So please merge the current patch. 

Thanks,
Ori
