This little program helps you to find builit-in messages in the
HP49G/HP4G+ calculator. Just put a search string (a word or word
fragment) on the stack and run this program. It offers a choose
list of all built-in messages which contain this word. Search is
case-insensitive. The scanned message together with its number
will be on the stack if leaving with OK or ENTER. The number of
the seleted message is a system bint but readable in any stack
display. Also the argument string is still on the stack.
You may also select several messages with the +/- key which then
all will be found on the stack. Be careful after selecting because
tick marks may disappear although selections are are still actual
(probably a bug in the original HP48 browser with selections). 
The main application of such a tool is to save bytes in programs.
Using a message bint together with JstGetTHEMESG is shorter than
including a string if the string contains more than 2 characters.
Therefore, if your program needs to display a message, look first
for a suitable built-in message.
Remark. Findmsg is also essentially a part of the library Msgman.
