  1. A prepared list used in CT for handling all Listing & Nulling errors, when trouble occurs on a listing (L&N) process, when TA goes high or pc gets sick or upset after a session that included listing actions.
  2. Used to sort out all possible errors related to L&N. The L4 is designed to sort out an L&N action in progress. If that doesn't handle, there may be prior or other problems that need to be addressed. The L4BRB is thus designed to cover a broader area.
