I wonder if the capability in the new ScriptForge libraries could be
exploited. Several routines in there look useful, such as:
ReplaceChar Replaces all occurrences of the characters specified in the
Before parameter by the corresponding characters specified in After.
ReplaceStr Replaces in a string some or all occurrences of an array of
strings by an array of new strings.
Reverse Returns the input string in reversed order.
Sort Sort a one dimension array in ascending or descending order. Text
comparisons can be case-sensitive or not.
All of the above I do currently using existing Calc capability (without
use of macros). However, if the ScriptForge functions above were Calc
functions, the result would be easier to develop and less error prone.
(This is what happened when new functions such as REGEX and CONCAT were
I probably have enough coding skills to embed these ScriptForge routines
into User-Defined Calc functions. However, I am wary of doing this,
because some such code I have previously developed did what I wanted but
was too slow to be usable. And my spreadsheets already are sluggish, see
Can I have feedback please on whether requests for new Calc functions
such as those above are likely to be feasible and implemented?
Please, any tips on how I should write code to exploit these ScriptForge
routines in a manner that makes them speedy?
