I find out with great surprise and disappointment that Revolution is much
slower then HyperCard.
I have a stack with 2163 cards, and a script containing the following loop :
repeat with CV = 1 to NBR
go card CV
if fld "ThProp" contains T or fld "proposition" contains ¬
T or fld "numero" contains T
then put word 1 of fld "numero" && fld "proposition" & Return ¬
In Hypercard, it takes about 4-5 seconds to perform. In Revolution, I have
transfered the fields in custom properties in order to make it faster. I use
the following script :
put the number of cards into CV
repeat for CV times
go next card
if the VTheme1 of this card contains Cetheme or the VProp of this card
contains Cetheme or the VNumero of this card contains Cetheme then
put word 1 of the VNumero of this card && the VProp of this card &
Return after IV
It takes exactly 1 minuts 31 seconds!
Is Revolution so slow, or am I missing something?
