Subject: %str() vs. %nrstr()
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Does anyone know whether using %nrstr(), when you are sure that there is
no macro resolving to be done inside the brackets, is more efficient
than using %str()?
I often see %str() in code when it is clear that there is no macro
resolution needed and it seems to me that you can avoid having the macro
processor scan the function argument if you use %nrstr().
Does this sound right or is there some complication that I'm missing?
