In the meantime, I have also tried all the bbp functions which
I could think of:


But none of them gives me a bat which I can use. Strangely, none of
them says anything about whether the function call succeeded
or not.

thank you very much for your help.

How can I access this bat, when I start a new session?


doesn't seem to work. io.print(n):

ERROR = !TypeException:user.main[1]:'n' may not be used before being initialized
