Monte, you request is a bit opaque to me..
-- to stay away from globals
-- to break up logical "areas of work/services" into separate scripts
-- to be able trace back to the original script I find myself doing a lot more of this:
I find myself doing a lot of this;
behavior_Listen # parent of the stack "listen"
# which is serving as the controller/model for all things having to do with playlists etc.
on playlist_SetCurrent pList
put pList into sTargetPlayList
# so then in this script:
# behavior attached to the card in this stack
# which is responsible for all things UI/UX related. i.e the "view manager" if you will
I can at anytime do a kind of "reset" with
put playlist_GetCurrent() into tPlaylist
This architecture is all a bit new to me but turns out to be very functional and pretty transparent…
so that "getter setter" thing… is that what you are looking for?

Basically anything where you follow a common pattern to do a thing but you can’t abstract away so you don’t have to write the pattern any more.
