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.

e.g.:


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