StripFormat is a valid IB statement. There's also StripRFormat and StripLFormat.

A SizeOf function could be interesting. You want to know the declared length of a variable? Currently you could do this with the PAD function then take the LEN. If you want to calculate the position of a particular variable in a record, currently you could do this by reading a record then summing up the LEN of each variable that precedes it. The READ would have padded each variable out to its declared length.
