On the iPad each app is sandboxed and that means each app has its own Documents Folder. You can get a url to the Documents Folder for your app but not other apps. Using that url you can read, write, append, move, and delete files that are in your apps Documents Folder. A BIG PROBLEM comes when

Since Livecode is written in C++ here is some info about using return in C. Every C program has a function named main. At the end of the function the programmer usually writes a return 0; That tells the c program the code has completed and is exiting with a 0 value which confirms it
