BACK

The BACK function returns the names of all currently executing programs, listed one name on each line in a multiline text value. When multiple programs are executing, one program has called another in a series of nested executions.

The first name in the return value is that of the program containing the call to BACK. The last name is that of the initial program, which made the first call to another program.

BACK can only be used in a program.
