    It just occurred to me that I don't know what these are called. So they're officially 'thingys' for the duration of this post. (C'mon people, have a sense of humor.)

    I'm one of those who was spoiled by C; rather than

    a = a + 1

    I'd love to be able to write it as

    a += 1


    Control( x ).text &= "tack this on the end of the string"

    I know this isn't canonical Basic, but why not?
