Excerpt of article text...

A few months ago there was an interesting discussion on the REALbasic Mailing List (NUG) regarding code optimizations. I decided to edit and organize these tips into a handy article which is a great collection of tips for newbies and pros alike.

Please note that I give full credit to the original authors of these tips. Going with that is the caveat that not everyone agrees on optimizations -- some techniques are marginally faster but create code that is more difficult to maintain and not always worth the effort, so test the code yourself and decide what's worth doing.

If you'd like to follow the full series of email posts on the NUG, you can search the list (at http://support.realsoftware.com/listarchives/lists.html) for "speed tricks."
