Name a Data Table

Assign a name to a data table by sending it the Set Name message. The argument is a filename in quotation marks, or something that evaluates to a filename.

dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA/Big" );
dt << Set Name( "New Big" );
s = "New Big Class";
dt << Set Name( s );

To retrieve the name, send a Get Name message to the data table:

dt << Get Name();

"New Big Class"
