Thanks Richard - it isn't really for a specific project, it is just for
learning good programming practices.
I was just thinking I would study up on those techniques that are best,
for situations where processing lots of information is required. We have
had a number of discussions about how to do certain things in the
fastest possible way. It would be useful (for myself, and I assume for
the others new to Rev as well) to know which processes are fastest, in
order to think of using those processes first, and then choose the
slower processes when the faster ones do not apply.
For example, I use matchtext for a spellchecker that compares against a
list of 174,000 words. It works pretty well - but if line offset is
faster, I would consider rewriting to use that instead.
Is switch faster than if-then?
Is add 1 to X faster than put X+1 into X?
