Additional Comments

Use the externals property to use the externals in the specified files.

Value:

The externals of a stack reports a list of file paths, one per line.

Comments:

Each line of the externals specifies the name and location of a file containing external commands and external functions. If you specify a name but not a location, the file is assumed to be in the defaultFolder.

The files are executed when the stack is opened, making the externals in them available to handlers in the stack.

Important! When you install a new external by setting a stack'sexternalsproperty, Revolution cannot use it until you either quit Revolution and then reopen the stack, or close the stack (after setting its destroyWindowproperty to true) and then reopen it.

Cross-platform caution! It is not possible to load externals written for PowerPC in an application running natively on an Intel Mac. To get around this limitation either use Universal Binary externals, or run the program under Rosetta.

Changes to Revolution:

Support for using the externals property on OS X systems was added in version 2.0.
