  Sample input:
on layout,
field "A" that contains "1" and
field "B" that contains "2
  Sample output:
$$A = 1
$$B = 2

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Great to load settings into global variables in a snap, regardless of the type of the field, where a loop would not stop in a calculation field.
Just place your fields on the layout, and run a script such as

Set Variable [ $temp ; VariablesFromFields ( ) ]
You can even use an unstored calculation, just as the demo file does, and not even neeed to run a script.
