Thanks, heaps!

After looking up "Hungarian notation," I've now got an earworm of a few measures of Zoltan Kodaly's (or in Hungarian, Kodaly Zoltan's) "Hary Janos." tight-looping in my head!

Oh, and by the way, I found my bottleneck in escaping for JSON. I was (1) single-buffering the escaping process, and (2) checking %LEN(%TRIMR(BUFFER)) with every damn iteration of the loop, and I had older code that was escaping other things in separate loops.

Double-buffering, with a variable-length output buffer, allowed me to check the length of the input buffer ONCE, and do all the escaping in a single loop. Got it down from over three minutes per thousand records down to 7 seconds per thousand records.

I guess that's what happens when you just let stupid code evolve by accretion of more stupidity.
