Uncommon Knowledge - WC_Is%

The current prompt information. Loaded by the system before any prompt processes occur and thus available from the default process onwards. It may be used in any process other than the edit pattern. In the edit pattern, @ANS is used instead, as WC_IS% generally contains the data as it was before the modifications requiring that the calling of the edit pattern were made. (Incidentally as edit patterns do not have to use Window_Common%, they may be developed for use outside of windows.)

The contents of WC_IS% vary depending upon prompt type, in Edit @ANS always contains only the current line, regardless of whether SV, MV, AMV, or TXT.
