Sorry, but I can't understand why you need to do this. Why not read the data
into gNames$(50) - that is, into a global array. That way, you don't need to
do the second step. And if you need a second local array, it's easy to move
it all across.

Don't think of INCL files as separate - they're really all part of the same
global program.
