It would be even better if it could optionally restore other global resources like the alpha register, indexed matrix state, flags, & registers.

Indexed matrix state is already saved and restored automatically when needed; specifically, when the currently indexed matrix is hidden by LSTO, or when a local matrix is indexed.

You can use local registers simply by creating a local REGS using LSTO: size 1 NEWMAT LSTO "REGS".

As for a local alpha register and local flags: I agree those would be nice to have, and they are on my to-do list. They are a bit tricky to implement because this will require new state types on the RTN stack an new logic in RTN, and this is going to collide with some other substantial work I want to do on FUNC. So, it is in the pipeline, but don't expect it soon.

It should do that already. If not, please let me know, that would be a bug.

UPDATE: What, those questions were posted nearly two years ago? My apologies, somehow I never noticed them until now.
