Jon,

This was under consideration for a one-time only use prior to a software install using LODRUN to pre-load an RSTASP value to be used when creating an application library.  I'm also thinking of using an environment variable.

I personally don't, but where I used to work we used it heavily for our
home-grown menu system. It was the perfect fit for the job.

I wouldn't hesitate to use it again if it fit.

I'm just interested to hear if anyone uses the local data area these
