Hi Blake,

thanks, fixed in *SVN 678*.

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.

        .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

        (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.)
