Efficient compiling and performance

The way you write functions and define variables affects your
productivity and your application’s performance.

Short scripts for faster compiling

If you plan to build machine code dynamic libraries for your
deployed application, keep scripts for functions and events short.
Longer scripts take longer to compile. Break the scripts up so that
instead of one long script, the script makes calls to several other
functions. Consider defining functions in user objects so that other
objects can call the same functions.

Local variables for faster performance

The scope of variables affects performance. When you have
a choice, use local variables, which provide the fastest performance.
Global variables have the biggest negative impact on performance.
