I think one questions was how to use "^& as argument passer". I can't
see how anything is "passed" here at all with...
It has been said that the ^& token works as a "shorthand for
preselected text (Sheri in a previous message)". Also it's a
shorthand for a parameter that is passed over to a sublip (see my
examples below). But Eb's clip doesn't select anything.
For me, a working Custom Clip Function -- similar to Eb's concept --
; long line start
; long line end
^!If ^$StrPos("^%nl%^%nl%^%nl%";"^%arg%";0)$>0 SKIP_-1
Actually, it's a miracle for me how Eb's concept gets to any output
at all. Which command in his clip is producing the output of
paragraph #2 to #3 of the Sample Text clip?
P.S. If I'm not mistaken, these are three examples for the use of ^&
1. Select any text in a document and display it with...
2. Put a preselected word into a Wizard field...
^!Set %text%=^?[Select text first=^&]
3. Pass a parameter over to a subclip...
; Start Clip
^!Clip "Names" George
; Subclip "Names"
^!Info The name is ^&
