I’d love to see best practices for [declare] blended into it. The helpfile for [declare] is good, but how’s a newbie even supposed to know to use the [declare] object in the first place? I’m just asking for an overview, is all.
I find declare's help patch well written, but of course it does not cover
everything, what is it you are looking for Phil?
