Let us think in a VEE program as a libray of a set of functions.
All NOTEPAD documenting any function within the library can be moved to the
'Main' of this library.

Then, from another VEE program the mentioned library is imported. What is
expected to occur ?

1.- Do the NOTEPAD's (or other objects) in the 'Main' of the library occupy
memory when loading ?

2.- Does VEE complier despise any code in a 'Main' of a library ?

We did some test to check it but the conclusion are not clear.

Regards.
