require(featureName)

New to v9.6.0, the require() operator adds the /Hints container and its subsidiary containers. It is equivalent to selecting Built In Hints from the File menu. If any of the containers already exists, that container is left unchanged. For example:

require("Hints"); 

featureName is a mandatory argument. It is a literal string and case-sensitive.

"Hints" is currently the only featureName value recognised by require(). But, this method allows for other values to be added in the future as need arises.
