Chipp Walters used to have something on his site that would do this. Took a
quick look and did not find it. Check the archives, but I think the Altuit
site has changed so much that old info will be obsolete.
Perhaps Chipp may know where it is hiding.
PS I always use 'into msg' or 'after msg' so I can find them later.
For a short time I always added "!!" like
put fld output & "!!"
but got out of the habbit.
Of course another way is to make your own lib handler
putMsg "flag upperTier is "& fUpperTier
on putMsg txtStr
then turn off the 'put txtStr' line
or find the putMsg lines
