Hello Wolfgang,

thank you very much for your detailed answer and your two examples!

Concerning the two keys with a special meaning, "reset" and "set", remains a question
to me. For what are they good? Does "reset" clear a data area, namespace perhaps,
before new data are stored there? If they are keys, what is there value or are they

Best regards,
