Subject: Optimisation ?


I have the following piece of code :

IF REC<1>  '' THEN
  MAX=DCOUNT(REC<1>,VM)
  FOR LOP=1 TO MAX
    IF REC<1,LOP> = '' THEN
      REC=DELETE(REC,1,LOP,0)
      IF LOP = MAX THEN GO 300
      LOP=LOP-1
    END
  NEXT LOP
END

I wonder could this simply be replaced with :

IF REC<1>  '' THEN
  REC<1>=TRIM(REC<1>,@VM)
  GO 300
END

Can anyone see any problems with using TRIM to remove trailing, repeated and
initial value markers and therefore achieving the same effect without
looping through each multi-value?  This is on Unidata 3.3.2 incidentally.
