Good idea, Mark. But... Then you have to put 'put empty' at the top of the section tested. Easy to search for, though. Or clear the message box by hand.
It would be nice to have a clear button on the message box. And a scroll bar. That way to you can accumulate several runs. You can put 'put empty' into the command line (or--I think--just 'empty' in earlier versions of LiveCode).
(Oh, by the way, Mark, this old teletype programmer can never bring himself to use CR for the LiveCode newline.)
Is GLX2 still available?
I suspect we are all doing this the wrong way. Maybe there are debugging features or compiler optimizations that allow for better ways to do this.
