These FB verbs were used in FB II to populate edit fields using a special 'ZTXT' handle ( see GET FIELD - btw: this shows as supported in FBtoC’s help but isn’t documented in FB Help. I haven’t checked FBtoC’s translator code ). For those who have Frank Turovich’s old books ( "Learning FB II - the toolbox" ) it is explained on page 164 "Setting and Getting Text"
