    Aha motivations for stdVBA which is a library I made. It resolves some of these points in some ways. E.G. stdLambda acts as a Lambda syntax for VBA. stdCallback allows you to ripe the benefits of first class functions, without those functions existing.

    There're numerous unit testors out there already. I do find it interesting as to why many prefer this result.equalTo(3) compared to result = 3. My own is a single class and goes down the Test.Assert message, x=y route. As a result most of my tests look like:

  • Evaluating expressions from strings in VBA

    At that point, I decided to try the fabulous stdLambda tool, developed by u/sancarn. I found that stdLambda correctly evaluated all the corner cases that made Volpi's class fail. This fact excited me, so I decided to measure the time it took to evaluate an expression with variables, noticing that the u/sancarn library was quite efficient. At that point, I started to measure the performance by evaluating functions like sin, cos, tan, abs, the results seemed strange to me when I noticed that the performance was almost 50 times lower when compared to the results obtained when measuring the performance by evaluating expressions without calls to built-in functions.

    You probably want to look through the tests if you want examples. Though the tests have explicit calls to .Run(...) and .RunEx(...).

    Hehe yes, a tutorial would be great. I used to make youtube videos, so I will at some point make a youtube tutorial for stdVBA. But there are some reddit ones too example1, example2, and there is some docs too not complete though unfortunately.
