I think, Sri, you may be expecting a bit much of Lynn, who is a busy man

[been there, made that mistake; the one about the name].

Surely, the thing to do is to download the free version of Xojo and the 
free version of
Livecode and run them side by side for a bit. I have downloaded both, 
and am planning
["all the best laid plans of mice and men . . "] to set aside 3-4 hours 
to play around with Xojo
and see how it compares with Livecode.

To be honest, I have little or no intention of swapping from Livecode to 
Xojo, having invested
about 24 hours a week for the last 14 years fooling around with 
Livecode: but I do have a
feeling a spot of messing around with Xojo might reinform me of 
Livecode's strengths, its
weaknesses, and suggest a few ideas for Livecode's improvement.
