Here's one for you, Dick..
In the above mentioned stack there's this part of a script, which is used to
pass the function params onto a handler:

     *if* the paramcount = 0 *then*

      *send* "initMe" to tObj

   *else*

      *repeat* with x=1 to the paramcount

         *put* "param(" &x& ")," after tParams

      *end* *repeat*

      *delete* last char of tParams

      *put* "send " &quote&"initMe " & tParams &quote& " to tObj" into tDo

      *do* tDo

   *end* *if*

*
*

*Is there a way to do this without having to 'do' the script?*
