Wooks it seems I am unable to create a reply (red) so I started new thread.
It appears your struggling to have thrown in assembly language lol and just talk about pointers because I took the conditionals and loop argument from ya but Jscripts object based language is not included in TSL only the C like bits lol but any way.
SQABasic for me is easier to do just about anything when it comes to the coding aspects as mentioned in my other threads.
Thats all I really wanted to state in the TSL vs SQAbasic debate

Strings are simply an array of characters encapsulated in double quotes. At the end of the string a null character is appended.
Just use the char datatype!!
So there you go TSL is like assembly language lol
thats right - in C a string is an array, not a string.
GUI automation is GUI automation. It is not testing.
I think the concept here is that TSL syntax is similar to C, not the language. It is written like C: using curly braces for block delineation, semi-colon statement terminators, similar looping constructs, and liberal use of function calls with the args in parentheses. But I don't think anyone would seriously argue that the actual languages are strongly similar. (And as one who was never comfortable working with pointers, I'm not complaining. ) I found my knowledge of UNIX shell scripting, Perl, and a smidgeon of C made learing TSL relatively easy.
