I posted this to the general forum last night but I think this is a better
place for it:

I happened to stumble accross an interesting undocumented PB feature on a
how-to web site (http://www.rgagnon.com/howto.html). They give an example of
using the INDIRECT reserved word for creating set and get methods for
properties of classes. Is there a reason why this is not documented? I would
love to use it but I'm afraid of Sybase removing the functionality. If they
don't document it then there is no real proof of its existance and they can
simply remove it at any time.

(if you read my posting in the general forum I also metioned a curiosity
about the Keywords service. This information I did find.)

You concerns are irrelevant. Sybase can remove DOCUMENTED feartures anytime
they feel like it.
