Surely a 'proper' RO utility should be setting sysvars with its own
name as a prefix, so maybe testacs$alt, testacs$ctrl, testacs$shift ?

There are, as far as I know, no rules for utilities setting system
variables. For application, yes, the rule is to use AppName$foobar.

Sorry!  It's not just a utility then (some of which are applications,
like !WaitUntil) but a Utility (if you see what I mean).

This is all academic now that ROOL has accepted my request to allocate
Alt$Pressed, Ctrl$Pressed and Shift$Pressed as system variables used by
TestACS. Although I had assumed, and mentioned, that they'd probably
already been requested by whoever wrote the original Test$xxx utilities.
Which turned out not to be the case.

Registration is what matters though...

Something else... when I used Firefox to go to


I received in return an error page from the server saying:

  Multiple Choices

The document name you requested (/fjg.index.html) could not be found on
  this server. However, we found documents with names similar to the one
  you requested.

  Available documents:

      /fjg (common basename)

Was that intended?
