Its not hard to work out what DM does. If you look at any of the examples or experiment with simple stuff like x=x+1 x=x*2 etc... then you can work it out with out much head scratching. It basically allows you to slide/zoom/spin/warp the image depending on how each grid point's code evaluates.

There are plenty of guides for DMS floating around, i think very few of them really explain why it works... but they are good enough. PAK-9's programming guide has an excellent section on DM which describes how it functions and provides plenty of example code...
