RE: im somewhst bsffled again
Actually, i just re-read the earlier post about cas and interstitial locals.
[Bug accessing LOCAL var in shared scope]

So locals are cloaked by Romulans but function locals are not.

This really means that a wrapper needs to be written for every use of a
"cas" function in a large program or else too many variables need to be

What is seems like is that calls to cas functions are not
really compiled along with the ppl stuff but do a runtime lookup
in the global export table. ??

Im no longer baffled, just annoyed.

Strange things occur:

Type sin (x) in the cas window

and it changes the input to

SIN (x).

But sin is in the catalog. Why isnt it SIN if thats what it wants?
The keyboard enters sin () which immediately turns into SIN.
Is this entry override supposed to make it easier to understand?

I work with android Prime only for now on my
Galaxy Tab Pro/Note 2
