But I'm not sure why you'd do that?
You can scan the BASIC object code, entirely within Pick BASIC
Without recourse to any outside routine at all

A unidata VLIST clone would be great, and I've spent a long time looking at 
object code and can see some patterns, but it's grueling to get going.

It's a *nix command that shows the displayable characters in a file.

Changing the subject to not hijack the other thread.  Yes, I too have a program 
that basically does a "strings" command on the object code and either dumps all 
strings or for each one looks it up in the VOC to check if it's a file.

I have to think (and I havent' yet checked) that the names of the files opened 
will appear within the object code, since they have to be represented as 
literal 
strings when they are named.  Sure you could pass the name in, but then the 
program wouldn't know it either, so we're just talking about files where the 
project itself knows the name of what it's opening.

So you can walk the object code, and reconstruct any literal strings within it.
In fact I think I have a tool that does that ....
