geese: What Geese (Programs) are Currently Running in the Gaggle?


Data can be broadcast to, or recevied from, any program currently running in the Gaggle. You can broadcast to boss or to all, and let the current Boss settings determine which geese get the data. Or you can use setTargetGoose to specify one particular goose – this is the most common approach. The current function supports that approach: it returns the names of all currently running geese.


geese ()


Returns the names of all currently running geese as a list of character strings.
