They are not classified by camera model but you can see in the description if they support your A610.

Something like this:

    Written for/on: Powershot S3 IS
    Also works on: Should work okay on all of them.

I guess the header is not that detailed, but every consideration you have to make prior using the script is in the description page.

AFAIK the worst thing that can happen is the script gets stuck and you have to turn off your camera and start again. Then you can report the problem or even fix the script for your model/build.

The scripts are typically written by one person for a specific build and camera.  This doesn't mean it won't work on others.  Quite often they should be interchangeable between cameras, as there shouldn't be a lot of difference, but this can't be guaranteed without testing.
Between builds can cause a few more problems as there are feature differences and, more importantly, syntax differences.
The header doesn't do anything to the camera, it is just an information line written by the scriptwriter.

As wontolla stated, the worst that'll happen is that the script will freeze up on an error, requiring you to restart the camera, no harm done.  Quite often, if a script doesn't work for a specific build, it can be easily adapted by changing the offending keywords to equivalent ones supported by the build being used.  For example, in my shutter speed script (http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,155.0.html), changing it to work on Fingalo's build requires chnging the keyword "set_tv96_direct" used by AllBest to "set_tv_override" used by Fingalo.  You can also note that I also needed to add a handler for values 1-19 as the get assigned to specific shutter values as indexing, overiding th x96 values.

barberofcivil and wontolla,

thanks so much for the info, but i'm at dead end when it comes to script writing, my eyes cross reading one, i'm worst than a toddler.. In short i don't understand scripts huhuhu. Anyway I'll look for scripts which i will be using and see if it will work on my A610. Hope i can get some help with you guys if in case it will not work, right?  :-[

Is there any script guru here that uses A610 too?  :'(

I have an A610. When I found CHDK several months ago it took me a while to understand but I do know a bit of BASIC programming. But there's not many commands so it's not that hard. At first I just checked out samples and user scripts. Most of what you would need are already written so it's just a matter of loading them up and having a play. I think the majority of them will work on the A610.

Or are you in need for something more exotic for your camera?

jonnythe is right, most scripts will work. be careful if a script uses zoom though, as the A series has only 8 steps in zoom while the other have way more steps.
