Indexed String Questions

Hi Netrexxes,

I use Netrexx's indexed strings a lot (IndString['label']="value") and have 3 concerning questions:

a) How can one (easily) retrieve the NUMBER of ELEMENTS in an Netrexx indexed string?
    Functions for normal Rexx strings [words() and lenght()] return zero. Hashtable size failes.

b) SIZE (in memory) of an indexed string?

c) write an indexed string to disk and retrieve again. PERSISTENT STORAGE.
    With Java's Object[Input|Output]Stream I can use normal Rexx types, but not indexed ones.
    Of course the workaround with writing a line in an "over-loop" works fine for smaller indexed strings.
