Just so you know, you can also turn this feature on/off by going to the LeftShiftHold-Mode menu, then selecting MISC. From there you can toggle ARG off and on.

As Joe indicated, there are not too many times you'll ever want to disable it. The only thing I can think of is if you had a REALLY large object and you didn't want it to take up memory sitting in LASTARG.


And here's a cute programming tip that most 50g users don't know. When the menu Wes mentioned above is showing, press right-shift ALPHA (ENTRY), then press either left-shift ARG and see -55 SF, or press right-shift ARG and see -55 CF. It types the flag number for you! In general, when you're programming and you forget any flag number (e.g. what flag turns off the beeper?) just go to any menu that has that flag in it, and press left-shift to set that flag, and right-shift to clear it, without needing to remember the flag number.

You might notice that STK and CMD in Wes' menu don't seem to obey this "programming tip". That's because they are not controlled by normal flags, and cannot be turned on and off with the SF or CF commands.
