      I meant, you know which Library the Clipbar Clip is in or any
      Clip that you are running, so ^$GetLibraryName$ does not need to
      return the Library name of that Clip. Instead, it could return
      the name of the Library that is loaded in the Clipbook. If you
      use the ^!Clip or ^!FarClip command, you still know what clip is
      being run.

      I cannot think of any case where you would not know unless you
      purposely made some type of random picker to run a Clip from a
      list of Clip names. I use the time though to get a primitive
      random generator though in my SureWord Library activate a popup.
      I made it way back in v4.0 so I am sure by know I could use a
      better method, but why fix something that works, eh? :)

      Happy Clip'n!
