Deactivation of (dangerous) the auto-declaration feature (put it for example in startup.dxl)
XFLAGS_ &= ~AutoDeclare_
- Functions that have only one string as parameter IGNORE the parenthesis. This often leads to unwanted and unexpected side effects.
a famous example of this behaviour:
string sA = "upper" string sB = "lower" print upper(sA) " " sB
instead of what was intended:
workaround, use paranthesis:
print (upper(sA)) " " sB
- Avoid string concatenation (like "stra" " strb"): it adds entries to the global string table which keeps increasing in size. There is no way to free entries from the global string table. Only closing a DOORS session will end up in freeing the memory.
