set the cProp of stack "C:/myStack.rev" to somedata
save stack "C:/myStack.rev"
Also, I just remembered something (third time this week, must be the
new pills). Aren't "unused" stacks purged from memory by the engine
when it needs to reclaim memory? I think I'm referring to stacks
without the destryStack set, but which have been closed. I seem to
recall reading this somewhere, either in the old Metacard docs, or
the MC mailing list from long ago. If it's true, I wonder if it
applies to "unopened" stacks in memory too.
Does anyone know?
