    Useful tool or no?

    Level 7
      I thought of this idea and just for the heck of it decided to build it.
      In a nutshell, it is a utility with a simple GUI that performs string
      concatenation.

      example 1)

      A stitch in time "saves" nine.

      becomes

      "A stitch in time " & QUOTE & "saves" & QUOTE & " nine."

      example 2)

      Line 1
      Line 2

      becomes

      "Line 1" & RETURN & "Line 2"

      example 3)

      Your score is gUserScore.

      becomes

      "Your score is " & gUserScore. & "."

      These are basic examples, you could easily create more complex strings
      using a combination of these. Since complex string concatenations can be
      tedious to create, does anyone see this utility as being useful at all?

      If someone has a proper website to host this on, you are welcome to it.

          I guess that there are cases where something like this could prove handy.
