Re2: How to declare record of records ?

Question asked by VRFuser on Jan 17, 1999
Hello Stan,

thanks for your help. If I have seen it right, you just changed the
"type"-parameter in the vee-file to "record" and added the required
record-parameters.
Do you think this manipulation could cause any further problems within the other
parts of the program ?
Perhaps the safer way is to do without record of records ?
(In no case I want to use a global variable)

best regards,
