I know your question hasn't been answered - but I did ask for
clarification about exactly what your question was (there was some
confusion as to whether you were referring to searching in the docs, or
the search algorithm used for, say, the offset() and find() functions).
I believe you were asking about the speed of offset() etc. - but every
other answer has been about various aspects of searching the docs.
I think (from the archives of this list about a year ago) that offset()
etc. are (or were then) generally considered to be not using B-M and to
be "less than optimal" for speed. However, that's not to say they are
terribly slow - so I'd like to re-ask my question about whether there is
a part of your app that is seeing performance problems due to search
performance, and suggest describing it on the list to see of any of the
experienced xTalk folks can suggest a work-around.
