    work out the canks?

    The other day I heard:" work out the canks" in a movie, but I'm not sure if this is spelled correctly, for I didn't find anything like it on the internet.

    May I trouble you to explain the idiom as well?

    I think you mean "work out the kinks"

    This means to get rid of small problems in some procedure. You would have to give us a sample sentence to say any more.

    Re: work out the canks?

    Yeah it's "kinks" probably not "canks". As I said, I heard that in a movie, so there was a 50-50 chance I'd spell that correctly.
    I think what you already said is ample. Many thanks Naamplao.
