the dynamicPaths

Good morning. Everyone in New York and North Carolina okay?

From the dictionary: 

> Use the dynamicPaths property for compatibility with imported HyperCard stacks that rely on HyperCard's dynamic path behavior.


Also from the dictionary:

> If a stack's dynamicPaths property is true, when a handler in that stack uses the go or find command to go to a card other than the original card, that destination card's message path is inserted into the message path as long as the handler is on that card.


"I see," said the blind man, to the deaf dog. This entry might benefit from a clarifying comment.

Can someone explain precisely the difference between hyperCard's "dynamic path behavior" and LiveCode's message path?


Cheers,


Tim
