From Help - StringReplace

Return Value

Returns the new string, the number of replacements performed is stored in @extended.

You can see that @extended is used to get extra information from certain functions (so far haven't used this so I can't tell which functions, you'll have to discover that yourself)


SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script

Some functions put useful info in @extended, others don't. When there is something there you want, you can use it just like any other macro or variable.

Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a good demo script:

$sString = "123123123123"
$sString = StringReplace($sString, "2", "_")
$iCnt = @extended
MsgBox(64, "Results", "$sString = " & $sString & @CRLF & $iCnt & " replacements made")

:P
