This is news to me! Put this in a button script:
put getArray() into tArray
combine tArray by cr and "="
repeat with n = 1 to 10
put "this is in an array" into tArray[n]
This works perfectly on my machine - what happens on yours?
What you can't do is use a function that returns an array as a
parameter to another handler:
and you can't use an array in a "do" statement:
do "someCommand someArray"
Many (perhaps most) of my apps rely on functions that return arrays....
