With most commands which may fail for a wide range of reasons, it's 
essential to check "the result" immediately after the command.  For all 
I/O it's especially helpful to include a call to the sysError function 
so you can learn the specific error code the OS is delivering to LC.


   save stack "SomeStack"
   if the result is not empty then
     answer the result &" ("& sysError() &")"
     exit to top
   end if
