Hi James,

If you feel so, you can do that on your own.

Try out this simple script :

on mouseUp
   local G
   put the globals into G
   replace comma with return in G
   filter G without "$*"
   put G
end mouseUp

Then go for the revdebugger.rev stack and open the stack script.

Look for the function below around  line 223 :

# Returns
#   A list of the globals with valid names. I.e not the ones with (x86) in them on Vista 64bit.
function revDebuggerValidGlobalNames

And there operate on  the globals as shown above

And last, probably better to make a copy of your LiveCode App before starting :)
