Re: [Bug-apl] )QLOAD should be silent on dumped files

1.  )SAVE (as always) is perfect

2.  )DUMP adds the word "DUMPED".  For example, the following is produced:

      )WSID ws
2015-09-12  09:19:47 (GMT-5) ws
DUMPED 2015-09-12 09:19:51 (GMT-5)

 I would prefer to see the word "DUMPED" removed for three reasons. 

    a.  )SAVE doesn't say "SAVED" so it is inconsistent
    b.  Just like I know I typed ")SAVE", I also know I typed ")DUMP".  I don't need it echoed.
    c.  It is cleaner

3.  Make loading of a dump file the same as loading a ws.  For example:

      )LOAD ws
SAVED 2015-09-12 09:14:49 (GMT-5)
      )LOAD dump
loading )DUMP file /home/blake/workspaces/dump.apl...

I would strongly prefer )LOAD'ing of a dumped file to provide the same message as loading of a ws except perhaps that the word "SAVED" is replaced with "DUMPED".  All this is just cleaner and more APL-like.

4.  )QLOAD of ws and dump work perfectly.

Hi Blake,

thanks, fixed in SVN 676. I introduced a new command )DUMPV (DUMP verbose) which is
like the old )DUMP and made the new )DUMP less verbose. Sometimes, when )DUMP fails
(e.g. because a directory is missing) it is convenient to know the complete file name information.

Same as for item 2 with the ")LOAD" command.  -- it should look _exactly_ as if a .xml file was loaded.

.APL files seem to be better support, and due to version compatibility problems, are to be strongly favored IMO.  So, if we are to make greater use of .APL files, I'd like to see two things:

1.  )QLOAD on .APL files should be silent just like it is with .xml files.

2.  Can a config flag be added to make the output of a )DUMP look more APL'ish?  I know I typed ")DUMP" just like I know when I typed ")SAVE".  Why should ")DUMP" give all that information that ")SAVE" does not?  I'd like the config flag to make the output of ")DUMP" appear _exactly_ as it does for ")SAVE".

(As a side note, I understand the difference between the two, and I like what the .XML file gives us.  I also think the way you associate SAVE with the .xml format, and APL with the DUMP format is good.)
