      > My overly concise suggestion didn't imply it well: it was because I'm aware of what setting a variable to empty does — and of your high standards — that I assumed you didn't mean to do the same thing twice. I speculated that maybe as you were writing this clip, initially ^!Set %varnames%="" was the last line, and after adding a provision for cases where no variables are captured, which called for a label :Clear, its removal was overlooked (or an alternative of just placing the label right above it). Sorry, Sheri; I'm sure it's not the last time I guessed incorrectly. (I'm also quite certain it won't stop me from trying... :)

      LOL. I'm deleting the line, this clip doesn't even create an array for
      varnames. Probably an earlier version did. Will try to pay better
      attention next time.
