the TD says:
# creates variables with initial values
you are right, this does not work when the local
command is outside a handler. nor are the values
held when all of the handlers finish.
sHolder = empty, the reset i wanted.
just determined by the good old empirical method.
is it close to say that the script/static global
performs as a parameter-passer while saving you
the bother of cluttering up your script?
