Sorry about the quick response in the previous email, as I was trying to
give an example of a repeat loop, and being a bit inaccurate. I did not get
what you were trying to accomplish...I am still not sure what you are trying
to do...., but here is one way of joining tasks...
--assuming this would be a desired result
input = "ABC"
edit field ="ACB"
output = "132"
-----thus use the following
repeat for each char CH in fld editField
put lookupchar(CH, fld input) after newString
put newString into fld output
answer "You bidding has been done, Master" & cr & \
fld editField & " has been decoded to " & cr & \
function lookupchar tchar
--get offset (tchar,field "input")
-- if it = 0 then return tchar else \
--return char it of field "Output"
-- this line does not make sense to me
return offset (tchar,field "input")
