Response to: More considerations

1) I definitely would not take the formating functions of VBScript as a strong point. They are almost useless. Using the system locale specific rules is quite often a bad idea. Especialy for web based projects and for log files. I would really love to get logfiles with differently formated dates from different computers.
But you are right, it's a surprise there is at least this.


2) Data conversion in VB is also horrible. Especialy thanks to the complete evaluation of conditions. The fact that I can't write
IF IsNumeric(foo) AND CInt(foo) > 0 Then
is driving me crazy every time I have to use VB(Script).
