returns a sequence with the names of all subkeys in both registries.
Note: all write functions only work on the local registry.
How to find the registries:
search for the system registry:
The system registry will always be searched in the same directory as the
executable. The name of the system registry is "applicat.rdb". If the system
registry was not found, then the environment variable STAR_REGISTRY will be checked.
If this variable was set, it must contain a full path to a valid system registry.
Search for the user registry using the following rules:
1. (for further use) search in sversion.ini (.sversionrc) for an entry
REGISTRY_VERSION_STRING (example: UserRegistry 5.0/505=test.rdb) in the section
[Registry]. If found, then take this value instead of "user.rdb" as "REGISTRY NAME".
2. Search in the config directory of the user for a file "REGISTRY NAME". If
found, return the full path and name of the file. If not found, retry this
step with a dot before "REGISTRY NAME".
3. If not found, a new user registry with name user.rdb will be created in the user
