Tip of the Month


If it can be done in a "Parse", it's usually more efficient than multiple function calls.

Example where PARSE:

   Parse var string word1 . word3 word4 . . word7 .

is usually more efficient than:

   word1=word(string,1)
   word3=word(string,3)
   word4=word(string,4)
   word7=word(string,7)
