I was thinking of coming to that conclusion but discovered that there 
was no such CLib in !System. There is a CLib in 500.Modules but that 
will not help much if one was running OS3.50.

I had found the rmensure in !System.Run

If Boot$OSVersion >= 310 Then RMEnsure SharedCLibrary 5.66 RMLoad 

Anyway thanks for clarifying up what the intention is.
