Obtaining Formatted Text From The Arrays

If you want the text from any of the three arrays, the following call extracts it from the structures described and either writes it to the screen or puts it into a local array for further use:


The flags for this call control whether the text is Written to the current device or moved into the output_array specified in the second parameter. The flags also direct whether the source arrays are saved or deleted and which kinds of dialog (errors, help, or other messages) are processed. Some formatting of text is also supported. See the description of MSG^DIALOG in this DBS section for details of its use.
