Wow !!! . . . . Interesting one !!
I could have answered this question without hesitation twenty years ago, but
now, . . . . without experimenting and looking at the resultant .mem file with
a Hex Editor . . . . .
From memory, I think that the disk file is over-written each time, so that only
the variables you define in a save are written to the replacement disk file.
So I think deletion is by ommision from the save list.
Untested example from 25 year old code, modified to omit one variable :-
SAVE TO (SecPracPath)+"Sxrem.mem" ALL LIKE Sxrem EXCEPT Sxrem3
Does that work ?
