When I call, for example, Sort , will the system use the Goferlist or the built-in sort?

RPL is case-sensitive, so "Sort" is completely different from "SORT" when the appropriate command is being located.

Short answer: detach the offending library before editing your program. But this really shouldn't be much of an issue, because it is rare that a library would intentionally replace a built-in command in the first place.

Any references to the command in question that are already in compiled form won't change just because you installed a new library, unless the library actually replaces the internal pointers to the command (this is rare -- I only mention it for completeness).
