Sets the script called when a new location has been detected.
You can query current location with the other location functions.
You don't need to install this script call to read location. You can always simply call location functions to get last known location.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.


Registers drag action handler:

MBS( "CoreLocation.SetUpdateLocationHandler"; Get ( FileName ); "CoreLocationUpdate")
