1. getProp control structure - Other than for implementing virtual
properties, why would this structure ever be used? I don't need to
use it to access custom properties; I only have to refer to the
custom property in a statement:
put the essentialData of group "myGroup" into mydata
Using a getProp structure seems like an unnecessary complication.
2. The open file command has an optional _for_ form (open file for
update | read | write | append.) I think I understand what each
form does, but what is the default? If I simply use "open file
<filename>" does it open "for update" by default?
