    f( "Hello¶World")

     

     

    FileMaker relies very heavily on strings (particularly script parameter + results) rather than on structured data types (e.g. multi dimensional areays, linked lists, binary trees,...). The available string-processing functions are however in comparison to other modern programming languages and environments notably weak.

     

    This is thus a general call for improvements, which extend the string processing functionality in line with modern programming languages.
