if you know that your string won't grow bigger than 64K
(for instance), you can try to create the string that way :
put " " into myString
repeat while number of chars of myString<64000
put myString & myString into myString
Rev should create a string of 65,536 spaces.
Then, when you update the content of your string, you
shouldn't use "put ... after", but rather :
get myString & newData
put it into char 1 to (number of chars of it) of myString
Hope that helps,
