If the stub is a standalone it never really closes because it's running
everything. If it's a regular stack running in the IDE, just make sure
destroystack is set to false so that when it closes it is still in RAM.
Put a function into the stub stack script that returns the text you
need. In the main running stack, call the function when you need to
retrieve the text.
You can either put the stub stack script in use, or just call the
function from the main stack using this syntax:
put value("retrieveText()",stack "stub") into tText
where "retrieveText" is the name of the function in the stub stack.
