Clearing a field

I have been playing with fields by putting lines of text into a field. Because I am using 'put <variable A> into line 1 of field 3' in one statement and later I use 'put <variable B> into last line of field 3' that subsequent runs of the program don't clear field 3 but just append.

Can LiveCode create a command line or console application

Hi, I am new to LiveCode and really I have not done programming in 15 years (even though that is what my degree is in). I work for a company where main development is done in Germany but there are certain features that our customer base here in the USA needs or wants. I have two in mind but one big ...
