This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

non recursive version.

Case (
PatternCount ( Text ; "<calc>" ) = PatternCount ( Text ; "</calc>" ) ;
Evaluate (
Substitute ( Quote ( Text ) ; [ "<calc>" ; "\" & Evaluate (\"" ] ; [ "</calc>" ; "\") & \"" ] )
)
; Text
)

Not same result in some case.
1. if <calc></calc> is contained in evaluated result.
2. if there is error, return '?'
3. Using variable
<calc>Let($a=0;"")</calc>
first:<calc&g t;Let($a=$a+1;$a)</calc>
second:<calc>Let($a=$a+1;$a)</calc >

Neat function! But I also like the idea of a non-recursive version. I think this will give the same results as the original:

If ( PatternCount ( Text ; "<calc>" ) = PatternCount ( Text ; "</calc>" ) ;

Evaluate ( Evaluate ( Substitute ( Quote ( Quote ( Text ) ) ; [ "<calc>" ; "\\\"\" & \" & \" & Substitute ( \"If ( EvaluationError ( Evaluate ( \\\"•\\\" ) ) = 0 ; Evaluate ( \\\"•\\\" ) ; \\\"•\\\" )\" ; \"•\" ; \"" ] ; [ "</calc>" ; "\" ) & \" & \" & \"\\\"" ] ) ) ) ;

Text

) // End If
