RE: Efficiency of try..endtry
Can anyone give me an idea of which of these code segments will be more
efficient to try to call a verb that I do not know exists?
Version A is likely to be much more efficient -- it doesn't have to create
the entire list of verbs, which is not accessable to you in any case if the
object is !r (wizperms notwithstanding)
However, if at any point in the execution of this verb or any verb that verb
calls, E_VERBNF is raised for any other reason, it will be treated as if
that verb did not exist and will fall into the error-handler. This may not
be what you want.
