Thanks for answering.
I haven't looked into Livecode Server. When you say I could run livecode
scripts directly from shell, does that means scripts, but not stacks?
Is Livecode Server easier to install on a 'headless' system? Is there
somewhere I should look to find explanation of differences/pros/cons of Server
versus IDE editions?
