    James,

    I've found an issue with MPE functions that retuern a CHAR. No matter what
    you set the return value to be, it only ever returns a 1.

    I believe this was addressed previous to ALPHA 21, as it apprears to have
    been fixed then. I found this in the history.txt file.

    + MPE: Support for CHAR variables as function results has been added. I
    didn't even realized that they weren't supported! Hrrmmm,
    Forgetful I am, yes...

    But apparently, it hasn't been fixed.

    unless i'm mistaken, there is only ever one character in a CHAR or CHR... if you want more than one character returned, then you need to use a string or
    an array or something that holds more than one item ;)
