What?  Back when I played with Pick, one of the selling points was that
one couldn't put the wrong type of data into a record field. Was that
feature simply a vendor provided customization?

Does it have to be BASIC?
Can't R or Python be used instead of BASIC?


I realize that using R means either including another scripting
language, or upgrading the existing R Language extension so that it
installs a version of R that plays nicely within LibreOffice.

Talking about which, Given how poor the documentation for BASE is, do
you know anybody who would be willing and able to write documentation on
using PICK within LibreOffice. (FWIW, Even a developers outline on what
it should do, would be a good starting point for users.)
