>> Hi folks,

>> Try this in the stack script:
>>
>> on openStack
>>   set the guessProgrammerIntent of me to true
>> end openStack
>>
>> Suddenly everything I really want my stack to do "just works!"
>>
>> So I can do things like this:
>>
>>   sort field "mydata" in a way that makes sense
>>
>> And Boom! the text in the field looks exactly like I want it to look,
>> whatever
>> that is.
>>
>> It even works with Strict Compilation Mode turn on! I think what happens

>> carries on as if you had declared it.
>>
>> I have tried this with both the LTR and the new RTL versions of LiveCode.
>> I have

>>
>> Looking forward to hearing of other developers' successes with the new
>> guessProgrammerIntent property.
