So, I am using symbol2list and list2symbol.
I am currently running up against what I think is an odd problem. I am taking a list and converting it to a symbol using list2symbol. Then, I am taking that symbol and converting it to the individual elements from the long symbol that is ALL of the elements from the list.
This is creating an unacceptable amount of lag in the program. Essentially my patch has in it:
| list a b c d e f g h i etc(
|symbol2list| using a zero-symbol as the delimiter.
As I said this creates a terrible drag on the system. Any ideas why?
Also, I am reconverting the symbol into a list to count the number of characters in the "symbol." Is there an object that does that so that I can skip this step?
