>Finally, note that you cannot have two stacks open with the same name.

Geoff, et al:

Several people have rersponded regarding the difference between the 
"stack name" and the file name.  I think at least some people are 
referring to the stack's LABEL, not its name.

A stack's name is the last item of its fileName.  If the stack has no 
label, the stack name appears in the window title.  A stack's label, 
if there is one, replaces its name in the window title.

Whether Revolution disallows duplicate names, labels, or both remains 
to be tested here; but one thing is for sure: if you use the O/S to 
duplicate a stack, you will not be able to open it if the original is 
open or was open and still resides in RAM.
