Here’s my silly contribution.   How many times do we write something like this:

put “Are you sure you want to delete the image” && quote & myImageName & quote && “?” into tPrompt

I have a simple q() function in all my projects:

function q inData
  return (quote & inData & quote)
end q

Now, I can simply do this:

put “Are you sure you want to delete the image” && q(myImageName) & “?” into tPrompt

Tiny, but mighty.   :)
